RBVC invests in start-ups and independent VC funds world wide

RBVC invests in seed, early-, and late-stage Venture Capital rounds and participates in the follow-on investments in privately held companies. Depending on the stage of the company the initial amount of investment ranges from below EUR 500k for a seed funding to more than EUR 5m in an early- to late-stage funding round. Our typical aggregate investment allocation per portfolio company ranges, including follow-on investments, typically between EUR 6 and 15 million for usually a 10 to 25% equity position in each company. We prefer to syndicate our investments with existing or new investors in the company and can take the lead as necessary. In addition, RBVC invests in select regional or industry-specific independent VC funds.
