Experience

They take pride in their motto "Entrepreneurs for Entrepreneurs". Most of them have been entrepreneurs themselves, and today – as investors – they are keen to meet the expectations of Europe's most ambitious entrepreneurs.

Over the past 20 years, they have accompanied and supported more than 100 portfolio companies through the highs and lows of their industry. Fostering the relationships between these entrepreneurs has always been high on the agenda.

How much do they invest?

Over the past 19 years, the Wellington Partners Tech Team has raised and invested five generations of VC funds with a total volume of € 700 million. They are now focused on value creation – working with their existing portfolio companies. 

From the headquarters in Munich, they are committed to providing outstanding entrepreneurs with the resources required to fund their operations. They proactively source deals and lead or co-lead financing rounds which will typically range from €1 million to €10 million or higher.

This makes a difference to them

Trust is at the heart of all great partnerships. And they aim for a strong and lasting partnership, as they want to see a great idea through to its successful globalization. So trust is the highest priority, beginning on Day One when you provide them with the initial information about your business or yourself.
