Experience. Hard Work. Capital.
“Freigeist was the first VC to invest in our vision at a time when it was still considered science fiction. Alex helped us develop software components in an early stage and Marc became interim CFO for our Series B round. With their financial and entrepreneurial support, we’re able to make our shared vision of affordable, eco-friendly air mobility a reality.”Daniel Wiegand, CEO Lilium
“Freigeist put their highly effective network to work for us. It is great to have an investor who thinks and acts long-term.”Zoe Adamovicz, CEO Neufund
“Freigeist has a hands-on mentality that we as a small team highly appreciate. They have not only invested their capital but also countless hours of their time and energy in finding the right partners. With their connections within the energy industry, we were able to greatly accelerate our mission of becoming an enabler for the energy transition.”Martin Schichtel, CEO Kraftblock
“The team of Freigeist is not only a long-term partner of me, we have become friends over the years. They were the first investor and helped build up Wunderlist. Today we cooperate on new European technology ventures. Freigeist is a product- and technology-driven investor with a long-term vision.”Christian Reber, CEO Pitch
Who we are
We are Founders
We are building and scaling technology companies for over 20 years. We understand your challenges: hiring great people, choosing the right technology, shipping a product users love, distribution, scaling – we are here to support.
We invest our own Money
We have no committees that need to approve your deal. It is our money and we back founders and products we believe in. We have zero time pressure. Building new technologies requires experienced makers believing in your long-term vision.
We understand Technology
Whatever we created, we utilized cutting-edge technologies often before they became mainstream. We have built and maintained complex systems and infrastructures. Technology is our core DNA and we are here to think and create with you.
Within the next 10 years, our world will change radically. New technologies like AI, Robotics, 5G and Quantum-Computing are moving from research labs into our everyday lives. This is our biggest opportunity to improve quality and sustainability of life. We need to embrace new technology to shape our future.
Startups are a key driver for innovation and progress. In our 20 years of founding and supporting startups, we have been through the highest highs and lowest lows. Building a company is an insanely tough challenge. But we can think of no better way to spend your professional life.
As a founder you need capital to build your company. But, even more important, you need an experienced, straightforward and fair investor-team you can rely on, when things don’t go according to plan.
How we invest
We are looking for long-term investments. We are prepared to support you in building your team, product and strategy.
We will offer support when and where needed. We think of ourselves more as co-founders than as investors.
We have over 20 years of experience and are very well connected with other founders, investors, business partners and politics.
