Dieter von Holtzbrinck Ventures

Investing in Europe’s
most passionate founders.

We are looking for entrepreneurs and their brilliant ideas. We want to be there when technologies call entire industries into question. Since 2014, we have seen this as both an opportunity and a challenge. Today, DvH Ventures is one of the most active early-stage investors in Europe.

As an independent venture capital fund, DvH Ventures invests with capital and management expertise. In addition, we offer our startups – if desired – media for equity and consequently the appeal of strong brands such as Handelsblatt, WirtschaftsWoche, Tagesspiegel and DIE ZEIT.

The team of Dieter von Holtzbrinck Ventures

We invest in ideas whose success we believe in. These can be ideas from the fields of fintech, insurtech or digital health. We also find artificial intelligence, cyber security, Internet of Things and Big Data very exciting. The same applies to mobility, education, energy or enterprise software. On the other hand, some of our most successful startups are those with ideas that we hadn't even thought of yet. So, if you want to pitch convincing ideas that don't come from the areas mentioned – we'd love to hear about them.
