Welcome to ‘Freiraum’
[ger. free space, leeway]
We back early-stage startups and teams and accompany them throughout their journey. We are experts in education and acceleration of early-stage teams.
Our home is the Strascheg Center for Entrepreneurship (SCE), the Entrepreneurship Center of the Munich University of Applied Science (MUAS).
Our fund is backed by Prof. Dr. Falk F. Strascheg – one of the most experienced and successful venture capitalists in Germany and Europe. He is a founding partner of EXTOREL Private Equity Advisers, a leading venture capital firm.
We nurture entrepreneurial spirit from the very first moment. Through education and collaboration with entrepreneurship centers and incubators we enable talents to find and form the best teams where competences meet and thrive.
We close the gap between ideas, teams and incorporation of the startup company by providing access to capital.
Together with 15 international partner universities and incubators as well as access to the local ecosystem for startups we have the biggest access to early-stage talent in the market.
Knowledge and education are the key criteria for us to look into. We believe in strong teams and solid business ideas.
We love early-stage entrepreneurs who have shown first steps and a strong commitment.
We invest in early-stage teams and startups with ticket sizes of EUR +/- 30k (pre-seed teams) and +/- 50k to 150k (incorporated companies). Apart from access to capital we support entrepreneurs with knowledge, coaching and the entire SCE infrastructure.
We want to be the first investor in the company!
