How we work -
a 360° startup evaluation

The best investments are made if the heart and the head are in alignment. We evaluate opportunities in a fast and structured investment process:

  • We employ a 10 point potential assessment methodology for a head to toe evaluation: a great idea, a strong team to pull it off and the necessary capabilities to offer unique and lasting value to the customer
  • We typically invest early stage: after proof-of-concept when a viable product-market-fit is proven, initial customer traction has been established, unit economics are solid and early signs of rapid scaling are visible
  • We follow a professional & speedy investment process and make value based investment decisions. We aim to provide initial feed-back within 48 hours and get ready to invest in < 8 weeks
