investment thesis


We deploy agile capital for product-led companies, offering new solutions to the enterprise world, that is innovations with an emerging market validation, obsessively iterated and improved by their creators.

We will seek rough diamonds in categories not covered by incumbents vendors, i.e. machine learning and productivity tools, business automation, e-commerce enablers.

SaaS and PaaS will be the distribution and pricing models which we will favour.

The 20+ strong pool of industry expert and advisors at our side allow us to delve into innovations across multiple sectors – such as fintech, proptech, insurtech and martech – and to be comfortably sector agnostic.


We will only invest in startups which have tech/coding talent and product management at their core.

6 digital platforms are on our radar: AI, Analytics, IOT, Security, 5G, Cloud.


Our “sweet spot” is Seed, where Italian Angels today are making up for the loss in focus of domestic VC funds and for the lack of international exposure. Occasionally, we may also join Series A rounds.

We believe we have the know-how to successfully interact with founders in this phase and contribute to the next stage of business and geographical expansion.


We will focus on startups committed to Italy, as the starting base or as a key milestone in their business journey.

A special attention will be given to Italy’s Southern regions, where we believe we can find unexploited talent pools and insightful projects.
