For over ten years we have believed in the disruptive potential of the Internet. Founded in 2000 as the venture capital arm of the Georg von Holtzbrinck Publishing Group, we now operate as the leading 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, among them some of today’s most successful businesses, such as Groupon, Zalando, Parship, brands4friends, Experteer, StudiVZ, MyHammer, AdScale, Wooga, eDarling and Gameduell.
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 work as closely as possible with the founders in developing their business. This approach has made us the most successful German early stage investor.
