EMPOWERING
YOUR DREAMS

The partnership is our portfolio

Our Team's International DNA and extensive experience as Founders and CEOs of successful Technology Companies, together with the collective know-how of our co-investment partners allows us to assist entrepreneurs and maximize their chances of success.

We are interested in projects with solid teams, which aim to create large international companies, with a market-tested superior product or service, and a clear revenue and profit generation model. Companies are not required to be in break-even.

4Founders is about empowering ambitious and talented entrepreneurs and their teams. It is not about controlling them. We only take minority investments, and we typically co-invest with Business Angels or other VC funds with solid experience managing successful companies in the same or related industries.

We invest anywhere from €50K in early stage investments, and typically bring co-investors with us to increase that amount. We do follow-ons for up to €1.2M per Company over the lifetime of our investment.

 
 

Team

The 4Founders Managing partners have collectively decades of experience as both CEOs of small and large companies and as investors in private and public equity and debt, bringing together a wealth of experience on which our portfolio companies can draw upon.
