Investment thesis

We support Seed stage B2B software startups founded by experienced founders from CIS or CEE region who are ready to start their global expansion journey and who need a credible professional investor who will help to:

  • relocate HQ and the founders to the EU
  • build European / international traction in a right customers segment
  • prepare for the next round of investment and lead or co-invest at the next round
  • provide professional support in case of exit (sale of business).

Why we narrowed our focus to this segment? Very simple, we can bring the highest value to these companies and we got pretty strong validation of our thesis. And we can help your startup to define your target customer segment and increase your chance to succeed.

Investment approach

New money for international growth

We help our startups to scale their business in Europe in a smart and efficient way by utilizing our extensive competence and professional network. Our initial investment starts from EUR 200-300k which normally is sufficient to reach certain financial and commercial metrics, define scalability strategy and raise next round of investments at substantially higher valuation.

Quick investment decisions

Our investment decision process is very quick and simple – we arrange remote investment committee meetings on a weekly basis and in case of positive decision we issue our investment proposal on the next day. Of course, prior to that we need to obtain certain information about your company.

During the first months of our cooperation, NNV helped us to define and enter a new target customer segment. As a result, we attracted tens of international customers very quickly and there is huge potential in this segment. It was a right decision to start our international expansion with NNV. We signed the investment just one month after our initial call.
