Trustworthy Long Term Thinkers

Fund: Holtzbrinck Ventures

Posted by ArndtRoller on 2008-04-04

PUBLIC:

Holtzbrinck Networks are an unusual and very successful investor in Germany. Very successful in the way that they identify successful start-ups and later-stage opportunities more quickly than others and are very fast in the closing process.

The above mentioned friendly approach is no "make-up", but part of the fund-culture and intrinsic to all members of the team that I have known for many years now.
If this is not enough to call these guys unusual, let me add the long-term thinking. This includes difficult times in the lifecycle of a business as well and is not limited to those phases where everything is great and cool.

What I enjoy is a laissez-faire shareholder-attitude during the good times and a fair appraisal (and tighter communication) in more difficult phases.
