CAN I SUBMIT MY INVESTMENT PROPOSAL IF MY COMPANY AND/ OR MY PHYSICAL TEAM IS NOT BASED IN GREECE?

Our mission is to work with the most talented founders on the most promising B2B tech startups – and these could come from anywhere in the world.

We accept company submissions from across the globe while at the same time we are committed to investing in companies that do or will upon investment maintain an operating legal entity (headquarters or subsidiary) in Greece. Based on this we have identified the four types of companies below and we may only explore investing in those that can be classified under A, B, or C:

A. At least one of the founders (or executives) has a connection to Greece (origin, studies, work experience, etc.) and already manages or will manage the Greek entity.
B. The founders are an international team that has or intends to build a development/operations/sales team or part thereof in Greece in a way that makes sense for their business model.
C. The founders are an international team that considers Greece a target market.
D. None of the above – the company is fundraising internationally and may not maintain a Greek entity.

For Pre-Seed investment in particular, in addition to the above, we need to meet and work in person (for a couple of days) with at least one of the founders prior to making our investment decision. Following this, and provided that we decide to invest, we will need to work intensively and closely together with the founders during the first few months to give their companies the best chances for success!
