What we do

As Dutch/German scale-up investor we invest since 2006 in European scale-ups across 7 countries.

Driven by AI, deep learning, quantum computing and democratized algorithms, we execute on our Intelligent Empowerment thesis.

Shift happens; we are supporting those entrepreneurs who drive that change and will shape the future.

We have assisted most of our portfolio companies with their Buy & Build based on which 30+ add-on companies have been acquired expending overall into 22 countries.

Out of our two homemarkets Germany and The Netherlands we invest with our current €254M fund in multiple European countries.

We care: entrepreneurs in who we invested for the second time, portfolio entrepreneurs who invested in our own funds, former employees who came back and so on.

We strongly believe that growing scale-ups rapidly is all about saying NO to numerous activities.

We are PRI signatory and highly value the principles for responsible investments, promoted by the United Nations.

We share experiences that help entrepreneurs move fast forward.
