The mix of strong universities and industrial expertise makes Germany a breeding ground for areas like Deep Tech or Industry 4.0, as well as Fintech. The country has been one of our core investment regions since 2012, when we invested in the cloud banking platform Mambu. In 2019 Runa opened an office in Berlin.
Actually Runa has various German footprints in the roots — from the Proto-Germanic origin of its name to veterans of the hosting industry Achim Weiß and Andreas Gauger, who have been supporting Runa as LPs since its foundation.
Few investors have international fintech expertise like Runa Capital and this is why we chose them as partners. Runa’s portfolio and network, in general, provide us with the unique opportunity to stay in touch with peers not only from Europe but also from the US.
