Partners to the world's tech entrepreneurs

It is our mission to find and fund visionary tech entrepreneurs, enabling the ideas and the companies capable of shaping global modern life.

In it for long term.

We provide founders support and partnership throughout the journey from Seed to Growth, so that the true potential of their ideas is fully realised.

European heart. Global mind.

We care about Europe. We understand its regulations and politics, we speak the languages and appreciate its cultures. Yet we have a global mindset and like to build bridges between continents, through our deep relationships in many different ecosystems.

A focus on what we know.

We are passionate about the sectors we have chosen to invest in. Being selective ensures that when working with founders we are able to bring deep insight, expertise and a progressive, forward-looking perspective.

A platform to scale.

We know that being a founder is hard. Beyond funding, we offer the Lakestar Platform to give you access to the best advice on Go-To-Market, Product, Technology, Talent, Communications and Capital Markets.
