We offer more than just equity for young technology companies.

We actively support the development of your company, we advise you on strategic business-related matters and our network is at your service.

We expect you, as a founder, to have a clear vision of your company and a focused strategy to achieve your business goals. You need to have the necessary know-how and sector-specific knowledge as well as the potential to successfully build and lead a company. Furthermore, we expect you to support your own share of the financing by high personal and financial commitment for the company.

We invest, normally together with independent private investors, in technology-orientated micro and small-sized companies in their seed, startup or early growth stage. The headquarters or significant establishment of the company must be located in the State Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania.
