• We invest in founders that build amazing SaaS companies

  • Investments

    We invest in 4-5 pre-Series A companies per year. Ideally, we join forces when you have €30k+ in MRR.


    We are OK if you are just figuring out how to scale. However, we do require validation for your product and market from your customers.


    We often co-invest but we don't initially require syndication. As you grow, we expect syndicated rounds to be built with great SaaS VCs in the market where you scale. Typically, the United States or the key European tech hubs like in London, Berlin and Amsterdam.


    We invest from a fresh 32M euro fund. Our initial investments are between 500k and 1M euro.
