Our Approach

Item of Christian’s private collection of historic artefacts centering around the ritualistic use of psychedelics.

Dionysus is the god of the grape-harvest, winemaking and wine, insanity, ritual madness, religious ecstasy and the theatre.

It is important to understand in this context that the wine of the ancient Egyptian, Greek and Roman times cannot be compared with our today’s wine. It was often spiked – especially in religious context - with psychedelic substances – especially magic mushrooms and ergot.

Hellenistic Bronze Statue of Dionysus, 1st century B.C. - god of ritual madness & religious ecstasy induced by psychedelics.

We currently manage more than US$ 3 billion across seven strategies.
Four of them - Presight, Presight Partners, Elevat3 and re.Mind - are open for institutional investors via closed-end venture funds.

All of our investment teams deploy an extreme value-add and hands-on approach, aiming to be an entrepreneurial, reliable and long-term partner to our portfolio companies, and in the case of Presight Partners, to our portfolio funds.

Our core belief is that every company, at any given moment in its development, has between one and three “triggers”, which - if executed successfully - will immediately bring the company to the next valuation level. We focus on companies where we believe we can influence or control these triggers and create value for all stakeholders.

Step 01
Identify and understand those triggers
Step 02
Can we influence or control these triggers, leveraging our experience and extensive global network?
Step 03
Are we able to get the best deal in return for being able to bring this clearly-defined and demonstrated value-add?

Our
Strategies

Platform Companies (internal capital only)

When we see major trends and structural changes happening in one of our core sectors, we set up and invest in platform companies/roll-up models to make concentrated and focused bets and acquisitions.

These platform companies offer centralized services and leadership – especially business development – and make most sense sectors where founders and innovators are often amazing innovators but lack the commercial or entrepreneurial skillset.

We have raised more than US$ 1 billion outside money in recent years for our various platform companies.

Listed Equities & SPACs (internal capital only)

We take active minority stakes in listed companies mainly through IPOs & SPACs, but sometimes also later in a company’s life cycle.

We offer our listed companies the same attention and value-add as we give our venture portfolio.

Primarily, we initiate and sponsor our own SPACs – often together with strategic partners – focusing on certain high growth industries and/or regions.

Additionally, we invest in the SPACs of other sponsors, offering an entrepreneurial, long-term investor & partner who not only provides capital, but deal flow too.
