We are an early stage (seed, pre-seed) startup investment fund. Our partners are international top level entrepreneurs and business executives from USA and Europe. We are interested in investing our time, know-how and money into new, cutting edge startup companies.
As our name suggests, we strongly believe in the English proverb from 17th century: “The early bird gets the worm”, meaning if you do something before anybody else you have advantage and higher chance to succeed. That is why we invest before anybody else in people who have innovative business ideas, get up early and get the job done.
When investing in companies we become an active minority partner. Besides money we provide resources and competences in the area of business strategy and management, finance, law, HR, marketing and sales, lean manufacturing etc. We are looking for partners – startup owners who are interested in collaboration and willing to take advantage of all resources we have.
To succeed a startup company needs to be developed very quickly without any compromise on quality. That is possible only through hard work of team of professionals covering all business competences. That is why we invest in people who not only have great business ideas but are ready to become team members.
We invest in people. People with an idea that can be turned into a scalable business.
When we talk to entrepreneurs, before we get too carried away with the idea, we want to probe them about their vision, mission, and values. We are looking for outstanding personality. Our investment decisions are based first on the human factor, then on the idea.
We look for product-focused teams who have found a painful problem and an elegant solution to that problem. We invest in products that have an impact in the near future.
