We Are Entrepeneurs Ourselves

We are a diverse group of people that love everything around digital start-ups, and especially the people behind them.

We like to do things differently, to innovate and to create.

We are entrepreneurs ourselves and ACTIVE is our startup.

We are on a journey to transform venture capital.

We don't believe that money alone is a differentiating factor.

We offer a lot more – we call it ACTIVE Value Building.

We invest in Europe and constantly look for excellent entrepreneurs with great ideas that will change the future. If that's you, share your plan with us.

Together we can foster sustainable growth to make an impact on society.

How We Help You

We believe that with the right support, introductions and guidance a company will grow faster than competition to become a leader.
We know where the pain points are and that is what we focus on.
1

VISION

Once you have established the vision of
your company you need to make sure that
your whole company is aligned with it.
You also need to create a corporate culture
based on your core values.
We provide the tools for you to pin these
down so you get your whole organisation
to work towards a common goal.
2

STRATEGY

We will help you take the right decisions as to which road to take.
We have seen what works, and what doesn’t, through experience and best practice. This knowledge will help you to perfect your strategy and maximise growth.
3

TALENT

In high growth businesses one of the main bottlenecks is finding good talent and retaining it. We have people that can help you with both as well as creating corporate HR policies tailored to your company.

4

MAKE NOISE

You need to create a buzz around your
company, not only for clients but also for
other key communities: VCs, start-ups,
strategic partners and potential acquirers.
We know how to set the stage for
your equity story.
5

GO INTERNATIONAL

Expanding into new countries requires
thorough analysis, strategic thinking and
careful planning. This is one of our core competences.
6

INTRODUCTIONS

We don’t pretend to know everything, but
our combined network almost certainly
does. We make relevant introductions
to our portfolio companies every week.
7

FINANCE

We set up the right reporting structure
– internal and external dashboards –
a key cornerstone to any business.
We identify the core KPIs that are relevant
to your business, and then fine tune them
over time through testing, monitoring and improving.
8

MENTORING

As your company grows it is imperative that you grow with it. We offer various world class forums where founders can grow and learn from each other. We have advisors and mentors that can guide you through the different stages.

WE ARE A TEAM
No matter who your contact at ACTIVE is you will always have access to the combined experience of the whole team.

Active's Community

We are strong believers in putting great minds together to create magic, besides the networking and the fun. Every year we organise various events that you should be part of.

  • PORTFOLIO FAMILY DAY

    Get together with all the C-level people of all our portfolio companies, talk to sector specialists, be part of professional workshops and play some volleyball on the beach.

  • VENTUREPRENEURS'ORGANISATION

    Spread out across the world there are serial entrepreneurs with successful exits and several angel investments under their belt. By gathering them together in one place it becomes an picentre of ideas, action and a lot of fun. We call it the Venturepreneurs’ Organisation.
