Being active for 20+ years in venture and portfolio management, we are experienced mentors & board advisers to companies and entrepreneurs. As your Venture Partner we can get involved on boards or as advisors working with the management on growth challenges, funding or to identify build-up targets for international expansion. For investors we are active to develop deal opportunities and value creation strategies in their portfolio.
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 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.
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.
