They have a preference for B2B companies, but are interested in checking B2G and strong B2C cases as well.

They’re happy to do lead/solo/follow investments in Switzerland and mostly do follow investments outside Switzerland.

Faraday Venture Partners

Faraday Venture Partners invests into European early-stage digital startups that have their first product revenue and business metrics in place.

They prefer to co-invest or lead. Occasionally also do solo investments. They typically seek a observer seat on the board.

CapMan Growth

CapMan Growth seeks companies with an already fast-growing revenue and whose goal is to double their revenue in the near future. They’re largely agnostic towards sectors and business types, focusing on the evidence of the company’s ability to grow.

They seek growth companies doing approx. €1M or more in recurring revenue (e.g. SaaS) or considerably more of non-recurring revenue.

They prefer to invest €5-10M tickets. In addition to direct investment, they are happy to bring their partner companies on board to larger investment rounds of up to approx. €20M.

They’re always a minority investor, often the lead (in Finland prefer to lead). They prefer to actively assist in growing the companies through a board seat and other ways.

Angelus Funding

Angelus Funding is a group of 45 international angel investors. They’re investing across the globe without any sector limitations. They seek startups that have traction with a clear path to revenue. They invest also in non-startups.
