Shamrock Ventures invests in tech companies that provide social or environmental benefits with their mission. The fund supports tech companies building a better future. Companies with a strong vision which is executed by committed founders who give their all to achieve such vision.
When reviewing investment opportunities, Shamrock Ventures looks for outstanding founders, an impact-driven mission build with innovative and scalable tech to achieve such mission. For more details about this, please refer to the separate items ‘Outstanding Founders‘, ‘Impact-driven mission‘ and ‘Tech-driven‘ on this page.
In principle we invest in companies headquartered in The Netherlands but exceptions can be made.
Our key investment areas:
- Circular economy (sharing economy / recycling / upcycling)
- Sustainable mobility (green delivery / cleaner & more efficient mobility)
- CleanTech (waste prevention & management / carbon capture and storage)
- Food & AgriTech (plant based food / sustainable packaging)
Shamrock Ventures typically invests very early, ideally in the pre-seed round. Revenue or a minimum viable product (MVP) is not required for funding. We invest in the company’s mission and the team of founders.
A ticket for early stage funding will typically be between EUR 100,000 and EUR 250,000. Shamrock Ventures can act as lead-investor and help find co-investors in a (pre-)seed round but can also join as co-investor. We invest with the intention to increase funding in subsequent seed rounds and to co-invest in early venture capital rounds.
If your company is looking for funding please complete the questionnaire and submit a pitch if available on the funding page. We will respond as soon as possible!
