VENTURE-KAPITALISTINNEN Die „Old Economy“ wird in der Start-up-Welt gern belächelt, doch ein Problem bleibt auch dort gleich: der Mangel an Frauen. Das zeigt sich besonders bei jenen, die das Geld mitbringen –denn die Risikokapitalbranche wird weiterhin von Männern dominiert. Doch es gibt sie, die (jungen) Frauen, die den Markt aufmischen wollen.

"We chose to partner with 3VC for three reasons: First, we like the US focus. Second, we were looking for an investor who really understands the healthcare market. And the third important reason is that Peter really understands computer vision technology. And this is a core USP of us, with a big part of our product team being focused on developing the computer vision technology." – Konstantin Mehl, Co-Founder and CEO
"Europe is a market that is getting increasingly important for PicsArt, in regard to talent, users and business opportunities. It is great to have 3VC as an investor, who truly understands the European market while applying a Silicon Valley investor mindset."
"There are three main reasons we've chosen 3VC as our strategic partner. First, the ability to make a rapid decision when it came to evaluation and financial approvals. Secondly, the added value of networking and talent acquisition. Last, but not least is the personal chemistry and general vision alignment." – Nick Ustinov, Co-Founder and CEO
"As 3VC had already added value to our company long before they invested in us, it was an easy decision for us to choose to partner with them. 3VC and their entire team deliver far more than we expected. They helped us with their amazing connections to potential hires, they ask tough and challenging questions, and introduced us to many customer/collaboration opportunities."
"There’s 2 types of startup investors: -those with a finance background, and those with a company-building background. I believe that entrepreneurs-turned-investors are, by far, in the best position to help early stage startups building a truly great business. Roman, Peter, and the entire 3VC team are helping us, on an almost daily basis, with advice, sharing their experiences, and hands-on support. Their support is invaluable for us."
"Roman, Eva and Peter have been invaluable in building a bridge to Tier 1 VCs around the world, especially the Valley. The 3VC team is supporting and challenging us from day 1 around our strategies for especially growth and monetisation. In my experience there are not many investors in Europe who can really motivate founders in such a positive way and 3VC definitely belongs to them."
"3VC has been the most proactive investor of Gamee and proved to be a partner for both good and difficult times. They identified and helped structure an acquisition deal for Gamee, that will enable the company to grow within a larger group."
"The 3VC team is highly motivated, really involved and dedicated working with DeepCode. They have lots of expertise and a deep understanding of our highly complex platform. In addition, the team shares our vision of solving many global problems by removing software as a bottleneck of rapid development."
"It's really about the people: Peter and the 3VC team, they're super engaged and motivated building our business, building our relationships and extending our networks. Very hands-on. Very pragmatic. We really have a sparring partner to openly discuss ideas. So, this partnership is not just about bringing in funds, but bringing in new ideas on how to enhance our business."
"As we plan raising Tier 1 VC funds in the future, 3VC is one of the best funds in the region to have on board. They're continuously speaking with the funds that we want to work with and this makes all the difference when we actually want to get in touch. Even though we were a small ticket on the fund, I really feel like we are a part of the 3VC family and they're always very responsive with intros, or other ideas to help us move forward."
"There are so many funds out there, but 3VC is really supportive when, and where it matters. They always start with concentrating on deeply understanding the business, the founders and their underlying needs. Just as we are with fraudsters and end users of our customers. There seems to be a great alignment in the way of working and thinking, that's really great."
"We choose 3VC, because their founders have experience with scaling business in US and running a sales team - which is integral to our success."
"The team members of 3VC are amazing partners. From the very first minute, we have received great feedback about all kinds of technical and business topics connected with SaaS. The interpersonal relationship and the mode of working together is great. Our partnership has been focused and productive so far. And last, but not least, 3VC has provided a very helpful network of technical and business contacts."
"Located in Vienna, one of my favorite European capitals, 3VC embodies important qualities, in character of the city where East meets West. Western business traditions and ethics, appreciation for Eastern ingenuity and effectiveness, strengthened by Austrian attention to detail, reliability and punctuality. With Silicon Valley connections and truly global vision we could not ask for a better partner."
