Regional venture capitalist for MV
Management support & network
Partnership for a time
In 1998, GENIUS Venture Capital GmbH was established on the initiative of the Federal State of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania. It is a subsidiary of Technologie- und Gewerbezentrum e.V. Schwerin/Wismar. We fund innovation-driven technology companies in their startup or early growth stage. To date, GENIUS together with several private investors spent a total of around 70 million euros on financing 25 companies.
We are currently managing two venture capital funds on behalf of the Ministry of Economics, Employment and Health of the State Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania:
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.
We are very much interested to realize our investments at the level of the technology companies together with independent private investors. We may act as lead investor or as co-investor. That decision will be freely and personally exercised by each investor.
