Profile

Kogito Ventures is CEE-focused early-stage VC fund operating in a venture-on-demand model. We build syndicates with Angel Investors and often co-invest with other Venture Capital funds. Ticket size ranges from PLN 0.5m to PLN 2m, and we can follow-on with up to PLN 4m per company in total. We can participate in rounds starting from Pre-Seed to Series A. 

 

Kogito Ventures participates in the Biznest programme run by Polish Development Fund and has been allocated funding of PLN 30m, which will be matched with another PLN 30m coming from co-investing Business Angels.

Fund - Philosophy

We treat #foundersfirst seriously and understand that our reputation drives our long-term success. We shun unfair clauses in investment agreements and respect your captable. We try to be helpful and never meddle.

 

Working for the founders, we support our startups in becoming successful companies by offering strategic and analytical support and help in finding talent. Because Kogito Ventures co-invests 50/50 with successful Business Angels, we can also provide entrepreneurial know-how, experience and strategic contacts.

 

We like to see moonshot aspirations, tech talent and velocity, defined as the ability to quickly move forward, adapt and get things done.

Business Angels

Kogito Ventures syndicates deals with a group of Business Angels on a deal by deal basis. We put our private savings in each transaction, which aligns the interests with the Angels.

 

Angel Investors have access to our deal-flow and can outsource the analytical, legal and transaction processes related to investing in early-stage companies.

 

Thanks to participation in the PFR Biznest programme, our Business Angels receive 65% of the value created at exit, with 5% allocated to the Leading Angel. This way they can leverage their returns and build a broader, more diversified portfolio.

Focus

If you started a business which:

We do not invest in:

  • companies with a broken captable, which are uninvestable for downstream funds and don't reward operational founders
  • incomplete teams
  • projects on paper only
  • projects where founders have no „skin in the game”
  • businesses that don’t have 100% attention of the founders
