We have a vision of the future. We are looking for like minds who will shape this future. Our investment ideas are based on fundamental trends in specific areas of technology. Areas where we can make a real contribution with our experience and network.
Smart Building Blocks
We see a world where intelligence is no longer centrally accessed through ONE single point. Instead, it is distributed in an omnipresent fashion around the end user. Connectivity, cloud architecture and continued miniaturization of hardware are laying the foundations for new, exciting categories.
We look for teams that are building category leading companies in Next Generation Networks | Virtualization | IoT Platforms | Big Data | Machine Learning | Smart Hardware and Robotics.
In our opinion it’s clear that enterprise users want consumer level simplicity. While consumers want the power of sophisticated technology. These user groups are converging towards software applications that offer the best of both worlds. We’re looking for web and mobile services companies where smart software tools can be applicable to users in both a personal and professional context.
Technology has widened circles of trust and diminished transaction costs. As a result, consumption habits are changing fast. We see great opportunities for companies to unbundle the traditional service economy through digital models. As well as companies that can support the foundations of these new models through improved security, authentication and easier payment and fulfilment.
Categories we’re interested in include: Marketplaces | Payment Services | Fin-Tech Platforms | Digital Security | Identity Solutions.
How we like to work
Every venture firm promotes their added value activities. We know that. Heck, some even have a talent pool ready to help with the design of your next logo. These are mostly used as a means to propel an investment once the ink has dried on the contracts. But there is life before the deal.
We invest time first, money later. Our approach is to start by sharing our network, experience and capabilities. Well before any investment possibility arises. We believe getting to know each other, gaining trust and proving demonstrable value, are the foundations for a long-term relationship. We hope you agree.
Ultimately, this approach helps both sides gain a higher degree of conviction when the actual opportunity to invest arises. We always stick to our promises, providing a fast and fair investment process. Want to know what to expect? Have a look at our Series A term sheet template here.
Sometimes our conversations are not followed by a capital investment. Time spent with the right people is never a waste. We also learn every day.
When we do invest, we'll make sure that you’re in great company. Because money can sometimes make a difference but being in good company makes all the difference.
That's why we're radically human in everything we do.
