Together with founders, we launch start-ups quickly and efficiently.
We love turning ideas into excellent business models.
We are digital experts and are actively involved in our start-ups.
We work closely with our start-ups when it comes to fundraising and also invest ourselves.
Founders & Entrepreneurs in Residence
We are constantly seeking founders who are the driving force behind the implementation of business models. It is of secondary importance whether you approach us with your own idea, or whether we jointly implement a Hanse Ventures idea.
As a company builder, our first task is to assemble an excellent start-up team that best fits the business idea.
The benefit for our founders is that they can fully focus on the business, supported by Hanse Ventures' knowledge, experience and fundraising expertise.

Ideas are the start of every business model
We turn ideas into business models and validate these using our expertise. Ideas often come to us together with a founder or start-up team. We have also founded extremely successful start-ups in which the person who generated the idea has not assumed an operational role. In such cases, we offer a consultancy role on the start-up's advisory committee.
During implementation, we continually seek improvements and are not afraid to retrospectively adapt entire business models. We constantly undertake tests and research. The aim is to develop new business models and adapt established models for new markets.
Rolling up our sleeves to create value
We are a team of around 20 digital experts and assist our founders in all the relevant areas. Together, we turn ideas into a concept and create a product. The crucial difference between us and a traditional investor is that we are operationally involved and have the necessary manpower.
With us, founders can flexibly integrate the best possible experts – thereby turning fixed costs into variable costs and efficiently achieving outstanding results. Knowledge management is generally our ultimate goal: we coach and advise our founders and share our knowledge with our start-ups.
Efficient fundraising is a competitive advantage
Those who efficiently raise capital have more time for implementation. For online business models, in particular, speed is a major factor. We work intensively with our founders during funding rounds. After countless fundraising, we know exactly what we need to do. Our founders can focus on presenting their start-up, while we take care of negotiating terms and drafting contracts.
We quickly and simply provide capital up to the first funding round from the company builder (EUR 50–200K). We participate in seed funding up to EUR 250K and continually invest in subsequent funding rounds from our fund vehicles. We invest up to EUR 1 million per start-up across all funding rounds.
