We are entrepreneurs ourselves

We are excited to work with the best European early stage startups to build outstanding success together.

In a Nutshell

Access to Customers

Pioneers Ventures gets you in front of potential partners as well as customers and lead users in order to close those important deals.

Global Network

Pioneers Ventures provides you access to a global network of industry experts and helps you take your startup global.

Visibility

Pioneers supports you to get your message out there by providing you a platform and connecting you with media at our numerous events.

Funding

Pioneers Ventures helps your startup to finance its operations and to gain traction for your next funding round(s).

What We Offer

We are not an accelerator program. We strongly believe that ongoing and very specific support will help your company most. This also means that you don’t have to relocate to Vienna
(Pioneers Ventures is headquartered here) if you don’t want to.

Business Development

Privileged access to Pioneers events around the globe to grow your relevant network. We match you with peers, corporate partners and potential clients.

Silicon Valley Insights

Our Silicion Valley Insights tour gives you two weeks of meetings with serial founders and VCs as well as pitches in front of product/market experts.

Learning & Mentoring

One-on-one mentoring sessions with industry experts (physically or online). Pioneers Ventures portfolio day enables high quality peer-to-peer learning.

Financial Support

We fund you with our pre-seed investment of up to €125K and help you raise follow on funding through our global investors network.

How we partner up - the process

We typically transfer money to you based on a convertible loan or direct equity investment where applicable. The convertible loan means that your company technically takes on a loan (debt) from us, but we agree that this loan will be converted into shares (equity) at the next financing round.

01. Get in touch

Use the online form to send us brief info about you, your team, your product, and the business opportunity.

02. Live video pitch

If you catch our imagination we invite you to do a live video pitch incl. Q&A session – no need to travel at this stage.

03. Investment proposal

Together we will work on an investment proposal including amount of money to be invested, milestones to be reached and terms of a contract (termsheet).

04. Deal Execution

After a positive investment committee decision we sign a contract, transfer money and start executing together on the agreed milestones to success.

We proud ourselves with the amazing work these small, but relentless, teams are doing.
