Thesis

Funding requirementsWe invest in four to five teams per year and focus on helping them reach their maximum potential. We are not looking for early exits. We back Europe-based entrepreneurs willing to build continental or worldwide category leaders. We strongly prefer to lead or co-lead rounds.

Seed to Series B, with check size ranging from €200K to €15 million for our first ticket.

We are not industry-specific as long as your business model is scalable and your product is digital. We have a special affection for DeepTech, enterprise software, marketplaces, and entertainment. We usually do not consider CleanTech & MedTech investment unless there is a special twist.

Our focus is primarily in France, although we are able to invest (and have already done so) in exceptional teams from Europe and the US.
