Geographical focus on DE, CH and AT

With our HQ in Berlin and a strong network among our investment team and our founder Carsten Maschmeyer throughout the German, Swiss and Austrian economies, we like to support startups based there to best use our contacts and understanding of the legal and business environment.

Initial investment of up to €500k

Our first equity investment is up to €500k and we are flexible as to lead or co-investment roles in the round structure in order to maximise flexibility for founders to include the optimal mix of expertise and contacts in their round.

B2B sales training
free & tailored

All portfolio companies have access to our inhouse team of sales coaches who work individually with each startup on the B2B sales topics it most wants to tackle. These trainings are free and are intended to support companies in building sustainable and effective sales operations for more rapid growth.

Total investment up to €1m

We aim to make follow-on investments among our portfolio companies in order to maintain a close and mutually rewarding relationship with startups that we believe are changing markets and creating measurable value.

B2B software

Owing to our investment experience we have a particular focus on B2B software companies. Both our sales support and the expertise among the investment team is particularly useful for tackling challenges startups face using B2B business models.

Evergreen fund

seed + speed was founded by the successful entrepreneur Carsten Maschmeyer. As an evergreen fund we do not have a fixed fund end date, giving us more flexibility than many institutional investors regarding exit timelines, and giving more leeway to founders to find and execute the truly best exit opportunities for all shareholders.
