As one of Germany’s leading venture capital investors Tengelmann Ventures has invested in over 50 companies over the past five years, many of which have become global players and leaders in the market in their particular segment.
We mainly focus on early and later stage investment in consumer internet companies, internet marketplace and technology ventures.
Out team funds companies world-wide in the role of lead-, co-lead or co-investor. In close cooperation with our global network of venture capitalists, professionals and consultants we always strive to identify promising start-ups and to support the development of our portfolio companies.
With us, you’ll get a lot more than just the necessary funds. We see ourselves as a sparring partner for the young companies we invest in. We provide support at all stages of growth and even in the case of market exit.
Modern telecommunication can be used universally all over the world. We think and invest globally, always with the international market in mind. Our portfolio companies operating in over 100 countries are testament to that strategy. The infrastructure of a big, international group like us as well as the global network we have access to provide a great number of opportunities for our portfolio companies. Emil Capital Partners, for example, is our affiliate company in the United States.
We think for the long run. Finding sustainable business models is in our genes. As a subsidiary of a family business with 150 years of business tradition it is our pleasure and duty to adhere to these values. We know that becoming a global player often takes longer than planned. We believe that integrity, a sense for continuity and trusting relationship with our founders are essential factors in creating lasting success.
We believe in team work
