Tomorrow belongs to the daring
We are Earlybird Venture Capital, optimistic risk-takers who roll up their sleeves
Valentin Stalf & Maximilian Tayenthal, CEO & COO
Earlybird played a crucial role in shaping our vision and market strategy, especially during our Seed and Series A stages. They have proven to be enormously valuable sparring partners.
Teodor Blidarus, CEO
As everyone would expect, with Earlybird we had access to "the way of the unicorn" – since they were early stage investors in UiPath and we could learn a lot from them. Perhaps less obvious is the support we continuously got – feedback on strategy and business ideas, relevant intros to thought leaders and business practitioners, and full support during the initial uncertain times of the pandemic.
Olivier Delporte, CEO
I have received fantastic support from the Earlybird team. Whether for financing purposes, operational issues or strategy, their polyvalent healthcare team has always been there for Miracor. They provide relevant input and always remain solution-oriented. It has been — and continues to be — a pleasure to have them as a key investor.
Kelly Herrell, CEO
Roland has been an extremely helpful member of the Hazelcast team. His background as a business operator comes forth in the most constructive of ways, as does his personal network and that of the entire Earlybird team.
