was founded in 2014 by Matthias Ummenhofer, previously head of European Investment Fund's technology investment business to capitalise on the digital growth opportunity in Europe. 

The Digital Economy is becoming the Economy and Europe plays an important role. It has world leading R&D and innovation clusters, about 500 million consumers, young and well educated IT talent, excellent tech entrepreneurs and well developed early stage financing ecosystems and hubs.

Europe has and is leading the way in important Digital segments such as music/ entertainment (e.g. Spotify, Shazam), gaming (, Mojang, Supercell), travel (eDreams, Skyscanner), e-commerce/services (Zalando, Just Eat, Zoopla, Auto1), fintech (Klarna, Monitise, TransferWise, iZettle) and adtech/marketing (Criteo, Neoloane).

Europe has a proven capability to grow innovative digital technology start-ups successfully into global players. These digital champions reach sizeable valuations and exits, many of them already well in excess of USD 1bn.

European founders and investors have high ambitions and aspirations to build global leaders and the pace of “unicorn” creation is now faster outside the Silicon Valley than within.

Europe starts to emerge out of the shadow of the Silicon Valley with interest from non-European investors and strategic partners ever increasing.

This provides for excellent investment opportunities with European born digital technology growth champions.
