Why do we do it?

In Amsterdam, our journey as a European scale-up investor began in 2006. Now, with three offices across Europe and backed by 72 entrepreneurs, we are proud of our portfolio.

Visionary entrepreneurs

In the canvas of innovation, the belief in the power of technology drives us forward. Through the landscapes of AI, machine learning, deep learning, and algorithms, we embark on a mission of intelligent empowerment. It’s a commitment to visionary entrepreneurs who are the architects of the future

At our essence, we firmly believe that for scale-ups to thrive, saying NO to certain activities is key.

We’re proud to support entrepreneurs shaping the future. Our Buy&Build strategy effectiveness is underscored by 40 add-on acquisitions across 22 countries.

European focus 

Rooted in Germany, the Netherlands, and Sweden, we catalyze change across Europe with our latest €300M+ fund.

But it’s not all about the numbers. 

Together with a team of international colleagues, we celebrate personal connections. Entrepreneurs return for a second act; portfolio innovators join us as limited partners and former employees find their way back to contribute

Segments

With AI as the overall denominator, we focus on Future of Work, Sales Tech, Supply Chain, Fintech, AI and Climate Tech. 
 
Join us on a journey into the heart of innovation, where purposeful investment isn’t just a conceptit’s the force that shapes a brighter, more empowered future for all.
