Back to who we are

How we invest
and co-create value

To us there is nothing stronger than a founder’s unshakeable intention to address a pressing and sizable social, environmental or climate challenge and the persistence to work towards that goal until it is solved.

As entrepreneurs, we share the enthusiasm of our founders to build solutions that truly matter.

To fuel their missions, we created a space for them to thrive, based on the knowhow, network, patient capital and experiences of our team, investors and experts.

Ananda manages 200 Million Euro and is proud to partner with some of the leading investors across Europe and beyond – from entrepreneurs and families to traditional VCs.

Target Stages

Early Stage
(Seed / Pre-Series A / Series A)

Mission-aligned capital from entrepreneurs for entrepreneurs

Our team is made up of founders and entrepreneurs who have successfully built and exited (impact) companies.

We know the highs and lows. We have lived it, and we want our entrepreneurs and their companies to live it even better.

We are focused on supporting our portfolio companies to achieve their missions, and at the same time we want to guide their management teams to do so in a healthy, sustainable way. Just as they are growing their businesses.

We say that we are “founder-aligned” because it is core to what we do.

Across all early stages

Ananda Impact Ventures makes its first investment in a company at an early stage (Seed / Pre Series A / Series A). The financing of such a venture is a shared journey involving several stages. It is a journey in which we continue to support the fund’s portfolio companies.

The typical involvement starts with an initial investment in the range of € 500K – € 3M and can grow up to a total investment of € 10M+ over several rounds and stages of maturity. On this path, Ananda Impact Ventures is usually joined by our network of international growth investors that can syndicate substantial investment rounds of up to € 50M.

Our impact termsheet

Diversity, equity and inclusion, founder health and carbon reduction sit proudly alongside impact in our term sheets. These topics feature strongly in our internal growth as a team and of course in the support we provide to our portfolio companies.

From Europe’s heart to the world

We are the first pan-European impact venture fund and a pioneer in our field.

Our strategy is to support enterprises that operate and create impact primarily on European ground with the potential to grow global.

With our home base in Munich and an office in London, we are at the heart of the European impact investing market and also feel the pulse of the venture capital scene.

Sounds good?

We are always looking for exceptional entrepreneurs creating the game changing companies of tomorrow.
