No strict manual for decision making

There is always a combination of strong reasons and good feelings. We try to navigate between them, but not always successfully, so a substantial part of our criteria is based on lessons learned.


Good ideas need excellent executors. If you are the ones, there should be some proof in your past for that.


We appreciate people who thoroughly work on their business plans before pursuing someone else's money


Never underestimate your competitors, even if you don't see the direct ones. Look around twice more carefully and invent your secret sauce to compete


Raising money is not the goal, satisfying your customers is. We want to see it in your eyes and in your action plan


Are you involved in a series of projects simultaneously? Well, you may find yourself too busy to answer our phone calls, no match then.


Something should resonate between us. At the end of the day, there is no fun in investing in people we cannot find a common ground with.

Private investors usually say that they are focused on specific areas.
Is that always true?

We allow ourselves to be impulsive if we like you or your idea. We are not biased with industries or geography. We try to be open to all interesting ideas.
