We walk the talk. We have created a realistic, lean, and sustainable platform to bridge seed-stage CEE & Baltic startups with Western Europe, US and the largest developing markets.

What We Do

Seed

Fiedler provides cash investments up to €250,000. We invest both at pre-seed and seed stage, thus the investment amount will be tailored to need.

Lead

Currently, we prefer to be Lead investors on any investment we do. However, we are always open to evaluate co-investment opportunities and intend to do an increasing amount of co-investments going forward.

B2B

We are quite opportunistic, but we have a clear preference for companies with a strong B2B aspect. We like particularly like platforms, SaaS business models, data analytics as well as ... We are currently looking at verticals.

CEE & Baltics

In line with our mission to boost VC in the region, we focus on companies from Austria, CEE & the Baltics. We are also interested in companies with Eastern European founders currently living abroad.
