PARTNERS

For a successful technology, reality must take precedence over public relations, for nature cannot be fooled.

- Richard Feynman, physicist, Nobel Prize winner, father of quantum electrodynamics

Deciding on who to work with and who to invest in, we put science and data first.

We target teams capable of delivering globally relevant solutions, ranging from cyber security to network hardware & firmware to breakthrough, heavy chemistry.
Marketplaces, gaming, killer apps, influencer marketing solutions, blockchain (especially private) or drones – do not need to apply.

FUNDS

Bitspiration Booster Sp. z o.o. as a Manager of Alternative Investment Funds (AIFM) runs operations of several Alternative Investment Funds (AIF or “ASI” in Polish).

We aim to utilize synergies between Limited Partners’ equity and European Union funding available for the development of venture capital market in the region. Our goal is to build a group of AIFs able to target tech startups on different stages from pre-seed (incl. difficult R&D) or seed to early-growth.

STARTUPS

EXPERIENCED
AND BOLD
FOUNDERS

Fully operational from 2018 we invited 17 teams to join us. Behind them are Founders who represent a fascinating but not (yet) particularly trendy set of skills, technologies and backgrounds.

With the average age of 40, experience from top tech corporates, international universities or running their own successful businesses – they bring to the table much more than you’d expect.

Synergies and knowledge sharing

Part of our investment process in working with the portfolio startups to explore synergies between technologies or products and share knowledge among Founders.
