OTB Ventures invest into software and software-enabled hardware startups, where the main value is in the software side. They focus on deep tech or other tech-enabled unique sources of competitive advantage. They’re interested in B2B and B2B2C, with possible exceptions of B2G who know how to sell their product well, and fintech/insurtech B2C.
They invest into companies that have a strong connection to EU – either based in EU in whole or part, or originally from EU, for example. Stage-wise they’re most interested in the scaling phase, with occasional exceptions for especially strong cases with a mature product that is approaching the scaling stage. Most of their investments had approx. 1M ARR at the time of initial investment.
They often lead or co-lead rounds.
