Why is it Important to Invest in Startups
and Growth Companies?

From our point of view, investments in startups and growth companies are a task for society as a whole that serves to facilitate groundbreaking innovations in Germany. We are competing internationally for the companies of the future. At the same time, many industries are under pressure. It is the responsibility of all of us to strengthen Germany as a place of business in the long term.

An important part of this are private investments in young companies. Many of the upcoming blue chips in Germany are already in the hands of international investors. We are committed to countering this trend. We get involved in early phases of a company's development to make groundbreaking innovations possible and to accompany later growth.

Companisto is a professional community of investors financing groundbreaking innovations. Join us.
