Want to invest?

You’re a professional investor or experienced entrepreneur and want to invest in young and disruptive startups?

We're Germany's first student-run VC

As students, we know the challenges young entrepreneurs face. With our fund, we will support these young and ambitious entrepreneurs to shape the future.

Startups will shape the future

Companies founded by young entrepreneurs in the last decades are fundamentally shaping today’s culture, society, and markets. Markets and business models are emerging and keep being disrupted in ever shorter intervals, providing opportunities for widespread change.

Young entrepreneurs change the world

Ideas that once started out in a college dorm room are influencing every aspect of how we interact with each other, how we conduct business and how we live our lives.

We support by investing from the beginning

With the right support and the necessary momentum, those ideas have the potential to shape our future. We help these founders with an initial investment, world-class mentoring, and a strong network.
