What do we offer?


We know that growing companies need not just capital, but also active investors who help founding teams scale their businesses by sharing know-how, experience and access to networks. As TDJ Venture we ensure you get access to the competencies of our experts gathered around TDJ Business Excellence.


We work fast, independently and flexibly thanks to the privately owned capital at TDJ. This allows us to adapt to circumstances and company particulars, helping us make the best use of market opportunities.


We offer something unique in the ecosystem: entrepreneur-entrepreneur relations based on shared values. Dealing each day with similar challenges we can offer founders realistic and adaptable support in seeking solutions to whatever challenges may come.


Our initial engagement is between EUR 4-6 million, but we understand that founders in building up their business need long-term partnerships. We plan to be with you also in subsequent investment rounds.
