Atanasiu Stringer & Krause launches VC deals platform for CEE start-ups
In order to support the VC ecosystem, Atanasiu Stringer & Krause (ASK) launched venturecapital.ML which is a machine learning platform connecting global and regional investors with European start-ups looking to raise Pre-seed, Seed or Series A investment rounds.
Bogdan Atanasiu, Managing Partner at ASK: “Nowadays, early-stage entrepreneurs need external know-how and expertise in order to maximize their chances of attracting funding, especially within the CEE countries, due to a fragmented market, where local VC funds and private investors do not always have the necessary resources to scale a business to a regional or global level.
Large companies within the CEE region are dealing with a more powerful competition from global players, regardless of their sector. In order to remain relevant on the market or to become leaders in their sector, they need to adapt to current digital and technology trends. Therefore, many of them are interested in accessing these new technologies from the earliest stage possible by identifying and investing in such start-ups, whether directly or via VC funds.
For investors: we provide a pre-screened deal flow of European start-ups (Pre-seed, Seed, Series A) for various categories of investors ranging from Venture Capital and Private Equity funds to family offices, HNWI/angel investors and corporations.
For start-ups: we connect your early-stage investment round (Pre-seed, Seed, Series A) with global and regional investors fit for your vertical/sector.”
