Our Founders

Our mission is to support innovative start-up teams in realizing and implementing their vision with Smart Money and we experience very closely the challenges faced by start-ups. Every company and every idea is unique and yet there are many parallels. Through our experience as an investor and partner of startups we bundle these issues and are also available at any time with our strong network.

Some of our founders are introduced here:

Taxy.io was founded by four former RWTH students.
