Leading European early-stage venture capital firm

We believe any industry can be disrupted by the right entrepreneur.

We believe software will accelerate this. We believe the entrepreneur will make the difference between success and failure. We believe business will become more global. We believe we add value by asking the right questions, not by having all the answers.

We believe data makes the difference. We believe in the value of enabling others through technology. We believe doing one thing right is more valuable than doing many things mediocre.

We back the companies of tomorrow.

  • The funding is one more example of how investors are continuing to support their most promising, and/or most capitalised, portfolio companies as they face drastic losses of business during the COVID-19 pandemic, which can only be more complicated for a startup built on a business model that — even in the best of times — is very capital-intensive.
