Fund Setup & Documentation
We handle the structuring process and fund setup as well as take care of all legal documentation aspects of a venture capital fund.
We develop a portfolio strategy and a business plan (such as costs structure, capital call structure, etc.).
Deal Sourcing and Screening
We provide you with a high-quality deal flow through active scouting as well as cooperations with partners throughout Europe.
We manage all aspects of your fund’s administration, in particular monitoring, controlling and reporting in adherence to both national and international standards.
We believe that the management team of a venture capital fund needs three types of partners – entrepreneurs, investment professionals and those who know both worlds. We managed to bring the “entrepreneurial-to-the-core” spirit and finance professionals together. Thus, our team consists of leading growth capital experts and serial entrepreneurs, giving us the ability to exit deals in Europe and the U.S.
