We believe venture capital is a service business and that you, the entrepreneur, are our customer. We work hard to support you on your entrepreneurial journey: "from inception to liquidity."
While many of our competitors market themselves as "hands-on", we actually believe that VCs can meddle too much. We provide value-add when you want it and get out of your way when you don't.
The most tangible benefit of having Sunstone as an investor is our help in syndicating your current and follow-on rounds. We help you produce your materials and hone your pitch to perfection. And then we introduce you to the most relevant partner at the top European and US venture funds, many of whom we've worked with in the past.
Our investment thesis is based on backing the very best European founders. With Sunstone as your first institutional investor, we help you signal to the world that you're in the top 1% of European technology startups.
We believe in intellectual honesty, moral integrity, and technology's potential to support human progress. Sunstone's portfolio is a family of likeminded hard-working and incredibly nice people. We'd be delighted to have you consider us as a partner. Please ask for references at any of our companies, past and present.
