Backing the real
We are the home for entrepreneurs with a big vision who want to create something less ordinary.
Something that matters.For all of us.
We aim to back the creators of some of the world’s most impactful companies. 12 years into this journey, we have financed and successfully exited some of the leading lights.
And there is a lot more to come.
We have been entrepreneurs ourselves.
We have lived it and we want you to live it even better.
We understand that you are looking for someone who deeply gets you. Someone that’s aligned with your vision and values. Someone who helps you grow to your full potential. Someone to be there for the many bumps in the road.

How we invest
We invest in founders who want to build solutions that truly matter.
We back early-stage enterprises based in Europe but with the potential to grow global.
Our focus is on companies based on DACH, UK, Benelux and the Nordics.
“With Ananda, we immediately felt that we are very well aligned, especially when it comes to creating as much impact as possible and improving millions of lives.
As a founder, I found it very useful to have someone on our board who plays the devil’s advocate and can open doors for us.”
“There is a proverb that in the face of crisis, the true colours show. What we have seen from Ananda was a wonderful and positive surprise.
I consider them part of our team – we wouldn’t be where we are now without their support.”
Dr. Andy Blackwell
“Ananda’s belief in us has been absolutely central to our success.
IESO probably wouldn’t exist otherwise and we’re enormously grateful for it.”
“Ananda is a really good blend of impact investor and VC.
To me, the Ananda team has the right balance of knowing when to push and when to step back. This was a great, clean and smooth collaboration, from start to finish.”
We are always looking for exceptional entrepreneurs creating the game changing companies of tomorrow.
