History

For over ten years we have believed in the disruptive potential of the Internet. Founded in 2000, we now operate as the leading independent German early stage fund in the fourth generation of funds. For over a decade Holtzbrinck Ventures has been supporting founders in developing their Internet businesses. During this time, we as a team have invested in over 100 businesses, such as Zalando, Wooga, Westwing, Dafiti, Groupon, DeliveryHero, Parship, Home24, brands4friends, Experteer, Ozon.ru, AdScale, eDarling, Auctionata and DaWanda.

We were one of the few venture capital firms in the past to ourselves found internationally successful companies such as Parship and Experteer. Our aim is to support the founders in developing their business as intensely as possible. This approach has made us one of the most successful German early stage investors.
