Investing in the Future
OTB Ventures is a leading venture capital firm in the CEE investing in early growth, post-product, high-tech start-ups that are developing unique technologies. Our partners have each over 20 years of entrepreneurial and international venture capital experience, and a proven track record in supporting the expansion of start-ups across international markets.
We believe that maintaining dialogue with founders is essential for us to effectively support them. We provide guidance, mentorship and advice, as well as strategic support and in-depth market knowledge. We utilize our industry, financial and personal networks - backed by our strong market reputation as a fair and founder-friendly investor.
We're constantly searching for the next opportunity - and encourage ambitious, driven disruptors to reach out and get in touch with us.
We invest in tech enabled start-ups and early growth stage companies with unique IP. We're focused on a set of specific technology segments, but we look for disruptive ideas across all technology domains.
We look at companies in the post-product stage that have a track record of increasing revenue. The key factors we consider are the company's potential for high growth and their willingness to scale internationally.
Our prime requirement for investment is a link with the CEE region. We look for businesses either based in the region or with a strong regional footprint.
Our goal is to invest between $1m - $15m in our portfolio companies, for which we seek to obtain a meaningful minority stake. The investment is ordinarily split across several rounds and our level of commitment is determined by performance over time.
KEY FOCUS AREAS
We focus on six specific technology pillars. Our experience in these sectors allows us to provide founders with the highest level of support and guidance in order to help their companies grow.
