Every good idea needs

A solid Basis for growth.

The Futury Venture Fund was launched in 2018 as a cooperation between experienced institutional and private investors and the State of Hesse. We offer young companies a unique basis for the development of their businesses.

We know that young companies in particular have a need for capital and know-how to achieve continuous growth, and we support companies on their way to the top.

Early Stage Venture Capital

Phase
The first or second institutional investor in the life cycle of a company is our sweet spot. We therefore prefer the late seed phase up to early Series A rounds with companies that have so far avoided large external financing.

Usually we participate here with T€100-500 per round and the opportunity to participate in subsequent rounds. Together with partners we can also participate in larger rounds.

Industry Focus
We invest in a wide range of technology-based companies and do not have a sector-specific focus. We cover B2B and B2C topics from industries such as fintech, eCommerce, industrial tech, internet, software, cleantech, mobility and others.  

Value Add
A successful startup depends on many factors. In addition to the capital, the founders benefit above all from our many years of experience and a first-class network of personalities from business and politics. This network generates synergies and results, for example, in access to potential customers or strategic support in the development of markets.

Futury Ventures: About us

Only in a few countries in the world are more patents registered than in Germany.

In order to provide the optimal breeding ground for this innovative strength, we want to contribute to developing the German startup ecosystem into world-class standards. This is why we prefer to invest in companies based in Germany, especially in Hesse.

The State of Hesse is aware of the importance of startups and innovative business ideas for the economy and supports the development of new business models. These modernise the economic structure, create jobs and offer new products and services.

We act value-oriented. The Frankfurt-based Werte-Stiftung, the fund's creator, consolidates the code of values of entrepreneurial personalities by linking value creation and innovation promotion. As a private, independent foundation, the foundation supports and initiates projects throughout Germany that convey values or make them directly tangible. The starting point was to create a platform for exchange between top-class sport and business. The common foundation is the conviction that values are the basis for social cohesion and equal opportunities. In this context, start-ups undergo a special value curriculum to develop and consolidate value-oriented corporate management.

We promote innovation. The Futury innovation platform, works with talented people from universities to develop new approaches and business models. The projects are carried out in cooperation with international blue chips such as Allianz, P&G and WISAG, who appreciate Futury’s value-oriented and entrepreneurial approach. The participating student teams benefit from personal development, coaching processes and further education programs.
