We manage VR Ventures together with Redstones dedicated FinTech team and help you navigate through every day challenges of an early founder.
Lukas Zörner — VP Germany, Qonto
“The network of VR Ventures has been a real Value-Add to Penta (acquired by Qonto) along our journey. Working together with the great team at VR Ventures has also personally been very rewarding.”
Throughout the Corona crises, VR Ventures LPs offered access to KfW support loans for Pentas business clients, which Penta was not allowed to apply for.
Wladimir Nikoluk — CEO, Atlas Metrics
"The VR Ventures' deep network in the financial industry has helped us to jumpstart our traction and to upgrade our go-to-market."
VR Ventures helped Atlas Metrics to win its first banking and life insurance customers within a couple of months and increase its early MRR significantly. Needless to say, that VR Ventures uses Atlas Metrics for its own ESG reporting.
Annika Mutius — Managing Director, Empion
"As our lead investor, VR Ventures offers much more than just financial support. In addition to personal support in strategic and operational challenges, the network effects with Volksbank are a particularly great added value for us."
Within the first year in the VR Ventures portfolio Empion won over six of our bank-LPs as clients and increased its early MRR significantly.
Jens Röhrborn — CEO, Banxware
"VR Ventures was a great supporter of Banxware from the beginning. In fact they brought us the lead investor for the next round."
VR Ventures introduced Banxware to the lead investor of their Seed round. One of VR Ventures LPs was the first banking partner to provide Banxware with a total of 100 million euros in credit volume for SMEs.
Atlas Metrics raised €5.2 million in seed funding to expand their all-in-one platform for ESG data management
VR Ventures was nominated as the best FinTech investor of the year alongside CommerzVentures and Simon Schmincke from CREANDUM
