Smart Contact Venture Capital Unit invests at the earliest stages of company creation and operation. We focus on seed stage and 1st round investments in capital efficient companies, which are developing interesting technologies & business models in sustainable markets. Our investments are primarily focused in Frankfurt and Munich Area but we have some reserved 30% of our funds for other German or international markets we know well. We are not afraid of committing before a company has traction.

We believe strongly in backing our entrepreneurs and then rolling up our sleeves to support them in building lasting companies. We have created a program to support entrepreneurs who would prefer to initially raise a smaller amount of capital while benefiting from a team of top advisors & service providers.


  • Experience is not a criterion we look for fresh perspectives & disruptive ideas
  • We value brilliance, relentless focus & persistence above all
  • We focus on pursuing investment that do not need more than 3 rounds of capital increase


Whether you are a brilliant student with a big idea or a proven serial entrepreneur looking to do it again, we want to hear from you.
