HTGF is THE seed investor for innovative technologies and business models. We are successful in supporting the best founders whose ideas can revolutionize entire industries and improve people’s lives. From the foundation of a start-up to its exit.

Founders tread an unknown path. Anyone who founds a company along with us has an experienced partner at their side. We know how financing works because we have already accompanied more than 600 start-ups on their journey and achieved more than 100 exits, including IPOs. If you are successful, then so are we.

Above all, we know what makes founders tick, what hopes and expectations they have – but also what challenges await them. We’ll stay on board even if the going gets tough. In doing so, we support our portfolio companies as a sparring partner.
