Apart from generating cash for your start-up, investors and business angels can also add valuable expertise to your company. Knowing what to look for in an investor is a key step in the fundraising process. Try to identify the areas where you would profit most from additional skills and network contacts.
The selection and profiling criteria for potential investor boil down to:
- Industry experience
- Network contacts
- Capital availability
- Investing pattern (at the stage of start-up I am in?)
- Geographic region
- Type of investor, i.e. business angel, venture capitalist, strategic investor,…
We have done the research for startups on the individual landscapes and we share our repository. Filter by stage, regional and industry focus, where the investors are located or investor type to build your own list.
Filter and select to build your individual target investor list
You can filter by various dimensions to build your own list of potential Business Angels, VCs, corporate VCs in different locations to cover for the networks you want them to bring in via smart money. The result is yours.

I just re-watched your videos – they are fantastic! Thank you so much for such a structured and “templates-based” attitude! Also lots of great insight about how an investor thinks during the Q&A sessions.
Petra helped us in structuring the key message and all relating documents for finding venture capital for a newly founded start-up in the field of green chemicals. She also provided us with contacts and venture opportunities for our mission. We totally appreciated her very experienced, well-skilled but still hands-on way of working with us. Petra is perfectly capable of sensing what her customers really need. We really learnt a lot! Thank you, Petra.

Selling a company is a complex process. When I was looking for a buyer to exit my company, the experience of the consulting team helped a lot. In the end, the professional teaser documentation and the invaluable negotiation support were decisive for the sale.
