Venture Partner and Mentor

Vectorpilot works with ambitious start-ups and growth companies in technology and digital markets. With prior experience of 20+ years as Venture Capital and Private Equity Investors, we are experienced mentors to navigate companies through growth challenges. Our involvement ranges from workshops, mentoring & advising up to active Board mandates. We also team-up on key projects, with a track-record of preparing companies for funding or exit and driving build-ups & international growth. 

For investors we are active to develop deal opportunities and value creation strategies in their portfolio.

Build-up Strategies

With more than 10 Build-Up’s in our past portfolios, we have a specific know-how to make acquisitions and acquihires successful at start-up and early-growth stage. Ambitious tech companies can achieve  high-growth trajectories  and a sustainable international expansion faster and with less risks. We can mentor management and advise investors on build-up transactions in particular in Germany and France.

International Scale-up

International growth is important for European ventures to avoid to be too early the "fish" for tech buyers & the well-funded "sharks". Expansion into other European markets should be a priority, as a European leader will have better access to fresh capital for fast growth & further global expansion. We support start-ups and SMIs on such international scaling, our focus is on the two main European markets:  Germany and France.

Corporate Digital Business

With 20+ years of investing & venture building, we support corporates on new digital business models and lean company building. Together with our Partner iq!, the Munich-based Company Builder, we have advised large corporates on new digital business models & plans or the set-up of digital business units. Recently we have supported Heidelberg Druckmaschinen AG by forming a joint-venture for building and scaling-up their

eBusiness and Digital Business Unit HDU.
