Why you should work with us

We’re independent…

As an independent venture capitalist, we work closely with our portfolio companies, focussing on value creation and sustained growth. Our approach and working style are defined by agility and commitment, complemented by extensive experience in our target markets. We act swiftly and decisively.

…whilst being affiliated with an international player

We combine the best of both worlds: we offer venture capital financing and access to Commerzbank, its employees, and its pool of expertise.

Commerzbank is a leading and highly-recognised international commercial bank with branches and offices in more than 50 countries. We have a close relationship with Commerzbank’s key decision makers and experts who support us both during the initial due diligence process and post-investment. This puts us in a unique position to offer more than mere financial support: we also provide deep sector expertise and access to industry leaders.

Last but not least: we love what we do!

You won’t find a single cookie-cutter CV among our team members; we proudly exhibit a bold mix of talents and backgrounds. But there’s one thing we do have in common: a real passion for what we do. FinTech, start-ups, razor-sharp innovation, and working with great entrepreneurs – these are the core drivers that guide us in our day-to-day business. Once you have managed to inspire us and we have agreed on a deal, your success becomes our number one priority. The way we see things, there’s just no other way to operate.
