The team was experience both as investors and founders in ecommerce, IoT, real estate, proptech and construction tech startups. Urban tech, greentech, sustainability, urban mobility and energy sources and energy infrastructure are also interesting for them.

They invest mostly in B2B and B2B2C tech companies, especially deep tech. They’re generally not that interested proptech transaction or asset valuation companies. They are very welcoming for diverse teams as well as first-time founders.

They’re often either the only investor or a co-investor of a round, with leading a round being rare for them.
