A focused investment strategy for emerging software businesses

We are a team of seasoned investors, entrepreneurs, and software industry executives who love to work with visionary founders.

Our industry focus helps us to become the partner of choice for software entrepreneurs who seek long-term support, and entry into the North American market.

Industry Focus

We solely focus on the technology space that we know best – software for enterprises, financial institutions, and other business verticals.
Our industry focus helps us to concentrate on what is most important for our portfolio companies, and on what facilitates beneficial synergies among them.

Value Add

Our team of venture partners and industry advisors ensure successful arrival, integration, and development within the most important technology ecosystem in the world.
We like to connect people, build great management teams, and are keen to leverage our deep and distributed networks to provide market access, deployment knowledge, sales channels and strategic relationships to accelerate growth and international brand recognition.

Stage Orientation

We believe that software innovations can only prosper and sustain if they are commercially successful. Hence we like to see customer validation through bookings, and revenues before we engage.
On the other hand we like it simple and try to stay away from complex shareholder structures.
Being the first or second institutional investor is our sweet spot.
Hence post-revenue “Series A” rounds and expansion financings with companies that are bootstrapped or have avoided large outside financing, is what we prefer.
