Thesis

We evaluate startup companies as complex, adaptive systems on a case by case basis. At the same time we developed a thesis to articulate what we care about most and where we see outsized opportunities for entrepreneurs. It serves us as a high level framework of thought, hence it is not supposed to narrow our exposure to any specific industries or technologies. As societal and technological inflection points continue to form, so does our thesis.

About

We are a team of venture investors and entrepreneurs who worked together for several years. We worked with companies such as Google, Earlybird VC, Index Ventures, Linux Foundation, Canonical, Shapeshift, Taulia, Centrifuge and Greensill. We are complemented by a network of experts with diverse backgrounds and shared values.

We take bold bets based on high conviction in very early stages (first check to pre Series A). We cover European markets first but have a global mandate.

 

Providing the best possible long term support for entrepreneurs lies at the heart of everything we do. We value excellence, transparency and commitment to a bold but realistic version of the future. "Which school did you go to", „You are too early“ or „Who else is investing“ are sentences you won’t hear from us.
