Who We Are
Triangle is one of the few European venture capital firms with an exclusive focus on investments in research spin-offs. Since its inception in 1997, Triangle has advised three fund generations (managing over €100 million): FirstGen, which started investing in 1999, Fund IV, with vintage year 2006, and the Open Sky Technologies Fund in collaboration with the European Space Agency (ESA), with vintage year 2010. The three fund generations have invested in 16 start-up companies with Triangle investing as lead investor in all portfolio companies and completing more than 100 transactions, including follow-on funding rounds and exits. Some €150 million has been committed to these companies, with funds from co-investors as well as Triangle-advised funds.
We understand, however, that Venture Capital is not for all companies. Our passion for empowering entrepreneurs led us to start a crowdinvesting platform FunderNation which leverages on our VC background and combines it with the wisdom of the online community.
