We are active angel investors. Over time we grew a network of active co-investors and advisors who bring both funding and experience as well as their own network to the businesses we invest in.
As a group we usually invest anywhere between EUR 200,000 and EUR 1,000,000 per company and regularly make follow on investments. For a seed round, we like to take an entire placement and join the board or advisory board, although we also co-invest with other experienced leads.
For Series A, we can either lead the investment round or co-invest. As far as geography goes, we tend to be passive when we invest in North America.

Once the initial stage passed, we will do a full due diligence on your business. You are most welcome to do the same on us and speak to our portfolio companies.
If we are the lead investors, we will discuss terms with you. We can move fast once the terms have been agreed and the docs finalized.
Notes vs Equity
We prefer to invest in preferred equity. We will occasionally invest in common stock or convertible notes as long as there is a cap.
We usually do not sign NDAs. We occasionally do so for very specific proprietary elements and prefer to do so when we close the investment.
