The European VC helps founders who are uniquely positioned to uncover breakthrough insights, and that have been toughened by being in the VC Twilight Zone. We’re not looking for second tier founder & startups. We are hunting for superstars who have been overlooked and don’t have the ability to make the case in a way that’s investable for the typical investor. Example: if it weren’t for a couple of forward thinking trailblazers investing in innovations that most thought ridiculous at the onset (AirBnB being the most prominent), many tech success stories would have never seen the light of day. If we think of the highly acclaimed exercise and media company Peloton, the founder has publicly shared that “the whole team of VCs would fall in love with me and the idea, but they’d say no because they couldn’t go tell their LPs they had invested in this…“.
The same applies to sectors such as Life Sciences, Climate Tech, Blue Bio, Waste Management, and the list goes on. These verticals, among many others, are underserved. And in times like the one we recently lived, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, this should make us reflect on how to increase innovation in sectors tackling the biggest challenges we will face going forward.
We help big organisations develop their overarching innovation strategy, prioritise & develop their innovation toolkit, as well as deploy innovation programs. Whether that’s operating an agile entrepreneurial approach to creating and scaling, finding the ideas, teams, systems & capital to design, build and develop lean ventures.
