Company-building helps early stage teams with a shared vision to realise products that solve existing problems and market niches. Typically, these founders lack one or several key ingredients that could really drive exponential growth. Our platform and corporate network provides the tools essential to scale-up and the benefits of a more active partner than the typical VC investor.
We invest alongside strategic partners with expert industry-knowledge across Real Estate, Energy and Mobility. We look for top teams and innovative and scalable business models with clear competitive edge in their market as well as ambitious growth plans. As one of the most recognizable VC players in Austria and Israel, with a proven track record of successful exits, we are in a prime position to identify the best European companies driving the Urban Future.
„Compared to many other sectors, property and energy are enormously under-digitized. We want to bring together the old and new economies.“
For traditional industries like Real Estate and Energy, connected through Transportation, increasing digitization and decentralization pose challenges to incumbents as well as opportunities for new participants. Build & Invest is the vehicle through which we look to embrace the blurring of boundaries between these sectors, constituting what we like to refer to as the Urban Future. Ultimately, it’s about creating value for us, our co-investors, and society.
