What investors say

Andreas Riegler, founding partner of APEX Ventures:

We became aware of Spleenlab thanks to our close cooperation with the BayStartUP investor network. The excellent quality of the companies supported by BayStartUP is one of the reasons for APEX Ventures to invest in the startups of the German deep-tech scene.

Claudia Raber, Partner Relationship Management of High-Tech Gründerfonds (HTGF)

As a Tech-VC, we are always looking for exciting startups from the most diverse technology areas. Thanks to its extensive network, the BayStartUP team identifies such startups at an early stage, prepares them optimally for their first rounds of financing and supports the founders beyond that. In our joint consulting days, we have already got to know some of our portfolio companies. This makes BayStartUP a strong source of deal flow and an important partner for us.

Roman Huber, CEO Bayern Kapital

The basis for successful business startups lies in transferring convincing business ideas into conclusive business plans. BayStartup has been very successful here and in coaching teams for many years. The events organized by BayStartUP offer capital-seeking companies and investors a highly qualified platform that has already brought partners together in many cases for successful matchings.

Networking with Business Angels as co-investors

Most of our private investors can invest 6-digit numbers, some also 7-digit, thus completing investments from venture capitalists.

Investor Conferences

According to feedback from our participants, the "BayStartUP Venture Conferences" are among the most important investor conferences in the German startup scene. We organize this event format three times a year, at which we present selected start-ups with different focuses to a top-class circle of 60-90 institutional and private investors. At the events you also have the opportunity to get to know the entrepreneurs personally. We also actively promote the exchange between private and institutional investors.
