From early stage to later stage, when we invest, we fully commit to your startup. We prefer Series A as initial investment round, and we stay in the game for the long run. Our investments are not subject to fund lifetime constraints and we aim for common exit strategies such as an IPO.
We believe that entrepreneurial spirit is crucial for the success of early-stage ventures. This is why we seek minority investments only – and keep you in the driver’s seat as a fully responsible entrepreneur. Our ticket sizes range from €500k up to €10mn.
We focus our investment activities on Europe, North America and Israel. For the right opportunity, we consider to expand our reach outside of our core geographies.
