PEOPLE 

About Us

WE HAVE EXPERIENCE, CONNECTIONS, AND WE ARE ON YOUR SIDE.

The main goal of Silicon Gardens Fund is to enable early stage startup teams with high growth potential to explore international markets, validate their ideas, and get ready for further funding. The principal investors are startup founders themselves who have successful stories behind them and are actively involved in startup community by assisting the portfolio companies.

The focus of the Fund is to add value by providing experience, coaching, and business connections to entrepreneurs in early stage technology startups. We at the Fund believe that the combination of top local talent and the world-class investor network can lead to amazing outcomes.

In the next five years, the Fund will invest between 50.000€ to 500.000€ in 10 to 30 chosen companies that we will help grow.
