This is our network

BayStartUP is a neutral and non-commercial institution for founders and investors alike. It is our task to support young companies in the development of their business and to connect them with suitable investor contacts.

The BayStartUP investor network therefore includes a wide range of investors relevant to the early-stage financing of startups. In total, over 400 private and more than 200 institutional investors are active within the network. In addition to business angels and family offices, which play an increasingly important role, we also include corporate VCs, venture capital funds and public investors.
