Vireo Ventures

We believe that electrification and digitalization are the backbone of decarbonization and green transformation. Vireo Ventures is a seed- and pre-seed-stage VC. We invest in European tech start-ups that drive electrification. As Vireo we take the long-term view and support our portfolio companies wherever possible. 

We support and invest companies that disrupt the established ways how we generate, manage, and use energy. We believe that we must find new ways how to create connectivity between the physical and digital world in order to build the 21st century infrastructure to support how we live, move and work.

“Electrification across all sectors is a critical cornerstone of a sustainable future, underpinned by a strong climate tech ecosystem. Through concerted efforts and innovative technologies, we can accelerate the global transition to an all-electric world powered by renewable energy. This transformation requires a symbiosis of policy, investment and widespread understanding. Together, we can light the way to an electrified world, but only if we navigate this complex landscape as a unified, interconnected ecosystem.”
