Our Support

We follow a purpose-driven approach to generate public value, along with financial returns for our investors, by investing in and offering guidance to talented technical founders with bold problem solutions.

Investment. We invest at the Seed stage—and preferably lead that round—by taking an active role in determining the valuation, executing the due diligence, finalizing the agreements' terms, and identifying co-investors. We target significant minority shares. Later, we go on to taking part in the Series A and B rounds.

Strategy and management mentorship. Our post-Seed investment guidance rests on three pillars. First, we make available our individual and collective experiences. Second, our pool of advisors is a source of valuable strategy and managerial expertise. Finally, the founders of our portfolio companies can provide first-hand peer information, having faced various challenges as entrepreneurs themselves.

Our Contribution to Sustainability
Our Contribution to Sustainability
One of the main principles on which our investment process rests is support for sustainable development.

We strive to adhere to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDG), set by the United Nations General Assembly in 2015 as a universal call to action to achieve a better future and address global challenges. We are committed to incorporating the UN Principles for Responsible Investment in our investment decision-making process and subsequent portfolio company oversight.

Our start-ups should embrace the same vision and offer solutions to sustainability-related challenges. The table below shows the mapping of our current portfolio companies to specific UN SDGs. Our portfolio companies are aligned with 7 of the 17 goals.
