Technology continues to advance at exponential rates and is changing the face of society and industry in astonishing ways. Driven by global needs such as sustainability, health‐care and efficiency in industrial processes, many of these technology advancements address large markets and provide interesting investment opportunities.

Innovation Industries is an independent venture capital fund aiming to capitalize on these technological developments, by providing investment capital to fund entrepreneurial activity, often originated at coming out of the four Dutch Technical Universities (‘4TU’) and the TO2 Institutes (TNO, DLO and ECN). 

Innovation Industries is a specialist fund, targeting companies that are developing commercially promising products and technologies in attractive technology fields like: nano/microtechnologies, semiconductors & integrated photonics, ICT & (cyber) security, clean technology, Food & Agro technology and medical technology (medical devices & diagnostics).

Criteria

Innovation Industries primarily focuses on start-ups but can also invest in scale-ups. With this relatively broad spectrum of funding capabilities, emerging breakthroughs in research and technology can be sustained by sufficient venture capital to optimize their chances of success and ultimately provide returns to the Fund’s investors. Once these companies are established with seed funding, the Fund will be able to continue financing the advancement of these businesses and technologies.

Innovation Innovation Industries typically invests €1-5 million in a single portfolio company, but can provide follow-on funding of up to € 10 million per company (and even more with our co-investors). In addition, the fund can invest in very early stage companies with initial investments typically in the range of €100-250k.

Values

We are responsible investors. At the core of everything we do is the promise to provide hands-on guidance and financing to technology ventures that have, or will have, a positive impact on society.
