Technology is never a means in itself. People have to see its practical purpose. It is not so much patents or computer code in itself that drives our interest. Rather, it is the vision and potential of a startup team to transform technology into a useful tool. A tool that can enrich people’s lives on a large scale.
We back companies like Carpooling.com, that provides the largest ride-share market place in the world, transporting millions of people per month in the most economical and ecological way. 6Wunderkinder (Wunderlist) helps millions of people manage their private and work lives. B2X lets electronics OEMs provide better and cheaper customer care around the globe. Peak Games has become one of the largest gaming companies in the world by focusing on bringing culturally relevant games online. SocialBakers helps thousand of corporates and agencies manage their social media activities. Madvertise allows mobile publishers and advertisers to make the most of mobile advertising in over 50 markets.
These are just a few of our investments, but they all have a common theme: a clear vision on how to become an international category leader by making a relevant contribution to the way consumers live and corporates work. In a sustainable way based on strong network effects and most importantly, with a great team executing on the vision.
