During this time, funds managed or advised by us have invested in over 185 companies, including great successes like Zalando, Delivery Hero, HelloFresh, Flixbus, SumUp, Scalable Capital, and many others.

As reliable long-term partners, we support the founders in developing their businesses into large and sustainable companies. Besides HV Holtzbrinck Ventures’ investment, we have a wealth of entrepreneurial, operational and financing experience. This approach has made HV Holtzbrinck Ventures one of the most successful European venture investors.
