We are living in unprecedent times with countless growth opportunities within the economic fabric thanks to the use of technology in every industrial sector.

We believe that venture capital represents for everyone an enormous opportunity to redesign the economy of the coming decades and we are working to establish ourselves in the sector by contributing to this boost in innovation.

Founders must incorporate analytical solidity, strategic vision and passion. They must identify with the ethical principles which we adhere to:
WE LOOK FOR VALUE Professionalism Integrity Determination Founders who act with determination have the possibility to significantly raise the level of professionality. Maniacal attention to detail, precision, seriousness, and the ability to recognise one’s mistakes are what we adhere to and we look for the same characteristics in our founders. We are looking for people who are resolute in the pursuit of their idea. A start-up’s growth strategy is defined according to an articulated process of thinking, listening and deciding. It is then on the founder’s shoulders alone to implement the strategy and their determination is key to success.

portfolio OUR INVESTMENTS

Slide

Slide strategy How does it work? We analyse all the proposals submitted to us and we set up introductory meetings with the ones we find most convincing. We then undergo a reciprocal exchange in getting acquainted which normally lasts from 3 to 6 months, followed up by a confirmatory due diligence at the end of this period.

We mainly act as the lead investor with a set of governance rules that allow us to maintain the necessary agility with the founders.

We plan out the level of participation in the future funding rounds following our initial entry.
WE SEEK VALUE
