Investment Strategy

Companies backed by us range from component, module and systems hardware companies with embedded software to intelligent design automation tool vendors to application and infrastructure software suppliers for industrial verticals. We are active in robotics & AVs, industrial machine learning, industry 4.0 and IoT, cyber-physical security, electronics & photonics, additive manufacturing, power conversion and storage, medical and quantum technologies.

We invest across Europe and would typically lead or co-lead a Series A syndicate, but we will also pursue Seed-Rounds as well as occasionally Series B-Rounds. Typical investment tickets range from EUR 1-3m initially together with a stringent reserve planning to commit up to EUR 10m to portfolio companies over the necessary follow-on financing rounds.

Here for the long run.

We care about our companies no less than our entrepreneurs, as we only invest in enterprises with a worthy mission to back.

"We have been focusing on deep B2B technologies for most of our investment careers and understand the specific challenges on the product development, marketing and sales, human resources and financing fronts."
