First Momentum Ventures
About First Momentum Ventures
- First Momentum Ventures is one of the most exceptional venture capital funds of this generation.
- We are the youngest VCs in Europe, were the first European team to set up a VC fund during our studies and are now starting our second €30-40m fund.
- In the last few years we have invested in ~30 pre-seed start-ups, with a focus on B2B and (deep) tech companies, and have become one of the best-known pre-seed and tech investors in Germany.
- Since then, many of our portfolio companies have raised successful follow-on financings from top European and US investors.
