how we invest

We create and invest in startup winners. From Coinify, Conferize to Reapplix and MonTa Biosciences – we’ve been on their journey and have seen it all.
We are proud to say that Gust and Fundacity have recognized us twice as the most active seed investor in Europe and in the Top 10 globally. The reason for this, we believe, is because we do our very best to get to know our teams and how they work, prioritize, adapt and execute. Our investment activities are an extension of our accelerator programs – we only invest in startup companies that participate in our program. Since 2012, we have made 67 pre-seed investments in startups. Check out our portfolio below!
