Database of European Single Family Offices Venture Capital Investors
Single family offices are getting increasingly important in Europe’s venture capital landscape. We offer a unique database of European single family offices who invest in venture capital. Our list helps to identify the most important SFOs who invest in startups and young companies. The investment focus of the listed family investment firms varies widely. Some rather engage in seed rounds, while other are accompanying startups up-to Series C or Pre-IPO rounds.
How Europe’s single family offices are investing venture capital in startups: from Seed to Series C
Europe’s family offices are investing in startups like other venture capital funds. Hot topics are software startups with SaaS solutions, digital ideas, retail companies or new technologies. A good example therefore is the Reimann-Dubbers family office Reimann Investors. The German sfo focuses on digital growth companies in startups in the German-speaking region. Reimann Investors is investing in all phases, from Pre Series-A to Series C investments. The family office already managed some notable exits like the payment provider SOFORT (which was sold to Klarna) or Vimeda. Current portfolio companies include Keller Sports, Klarna or usercentrics. On the other hand there are many SFOs who rather serve as “business angel family offices” and invest in really young companies and ideas.
Why single family offices are interested in startups and venture capital investments
We can see a clear trend of an increasing number of single family offices engaging in startup and venture capital investments. There are many reason for it: returns in other asset classes are on a record low level, while venture capital investments can sometimes be extraordinarily lucrative. Furthermore, many entrepreneurial single family offices want to leverage their expertise and network through investments in startups. Their contacts and often-related family businesses make them interesting funding partners for young companies.
