Our Investment Focus

Each idea that reaches us gets reviewed by a member of our investment team. In order to be reviewed more intensively, your idea should fit into the three dimensions of our investment focus.

Why b-to-v is different

The b-to-v network consists of entrepreneurs who are willing to put their capital and expertise at the disposal of your company and are able to make the difference when it comes to the success of your business. It gives our members the opportunity to exchange their ideas and opinions about investment opportunities with like-minded entrepreneurs that have specific expertise according to their different backgrounds.

After having passed our screening process, the most promising ventures
are being presented to our investor network via one of the following means:

VideoMeeting

b-to-v organizes frequent video or telephone conferences during which entrepreneurs present their companies to investors.

Due Diligence & Investment

After having agreed on a partnership in principal we do conduct our due diligence, structure the investment and wire the funds.

Here we go!

Although the fund raising process can be time consuming and exhaustive, the investment is only the beginning of our journey to success. At b-to-v, we try to help you both as investor and friend in the following areas.

Growth1-Follow-up Financing

Follow-on Financing

We usually invest only a part of our total commitment in a first investment round. If the company develops well we are happy to follow on with further investments and invite our international friends and institutional VCs to support the founders on their way to expand their business.

Growth2-Interaction

Interaction

b-to-v and the lead investor stay in close contact with the portfolio companies and try to participate and help wherever they can. The foundation for that is regular and transparent information about the current status of your company – regardless if positive or negative.

Growth3-Cooperations

Cooperations / Exits

In addition to our personal network we maintain close relationships to our multipliers and large corporations as potential acquirers.
