Who we are


The CHECK24 Ventures team is made up of successful entrepreneurs and managers. Based on their experience and background we can support ambitious entrepreneurs throughout their journey in growing their business. In the past we have guided numerous companies to their success and know the challenges that lie ahead.

We are focused on early stage financing of young companies and invest earlier than most other VCs. It is our goal that together with the founders we generate value from day one and as such do not only provide capital. We are successful when our backed founders are successful.

We offer and combine the best of two worlds: We provide early venture capital financing and also offer access to the CHECK24 network, its employees and their know how in the fields of IT, product and online & offline marketing.

The CHECK24 group is Germanys largest online comparison portal and offers consumers insurance, energy, finance, telco, travel and shopping comparisons with free telephone counseling.

We have a close exchange with the most important decision makers and experts of the CHECK24 group. These support us during the investment process and help our portfolio companies grow to their maximum potential. This puts us in a unique position of not only being able to provide capital but to also help with deep industry knowledge, product and IT know how and access to a great network of leading companies in the industry.
