We invest as an early-stage investor in (Pre-) Seed & Series A rounds with a focus on Real Estate Tech, Mobility, Energy and Impact. We summarize these sectors under the heading "Urban Tech". Real estate is at the core of ever-growing urbanity and our infrastructure determines how modern and competitive a location will be tomorrow - always keeping the future of the environment and the entire ecosystem in mind
In our focus areas, we see sustainable and disruptive developments where we see particular potential to build new and disruptive businesses:

Sustainability is not a slogan for us, but a duty, and we therefore see it as our responsibility to invest in a sustainable, better future.

Digitization of the Construction Sector

The digitization of the construction sector offers great potential, especially due to the enormous market size in combination with the currently still low level of digitization.

Shared Economy

In our focus areas, we also see the development of a shared economy as essential in order to enable consistent growth while conserving resources.

Use of the Property Data

Not only the connection and use of real estate data is becoming more and more relevant, but also the digitalization of real estate management and its processes.

Renewable Energies

The usage, management and distribution of renewable energy poses major challenges to our infrastructure, and innovative technologies will emerge to solve them.

Future Workplace

The way we work and where we work will change. We see the workplace of the future in flexible, distributed models and more and more in virtual spaces.

Holistic Ecosystem

In addition, we see the ecosystem as a whole and therefore invest in all technologies that enable a sustainable environment by reducing and offsetting CO2 emissions, promote the careful use of resources and ensure clean air and clear water.

Our target industries are among the largest in the world, but are still in the early stages of digitization. We collaborate with our exceptional founding teams to lead these industries into a digital 21st century and to shape and change them for the long term.
