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$ 3.5 billion across seven strategies.
Five of them - Presight, Presight Partners, Elevat3, re.Mind and Alpine Space - 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 ideally even control these triggers and hence create value for all stakeholders.

Step 01
Identify and understand those triggers
Step 02
Influence or even control them (based on our experience and extensive global network)
Step 03
Get a very good deal in return for being able to bring this very concrete/defined value-add

Our
Strategies

Incubation & Platform Companies (internal capital only)

We make long-term bets on scientific & technological breakthroughs. When we have original ideas – such as being the first in this century to re-think the medical use of psychedelics - we incubate companies inspiring radical structural change.

We particularly like platform and roll-up strategies with centralized services, leadership & business development, supporting founders and scientists with our entrepreneurial vision and company-building capability.

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 are initiating and sponsoring our own SPACs – often together with strategic partners – focusing on certain high growth industries and/or regions.

Additionally, we are investing into the SPACs of other sponsors, offering SPAC sponsors an entrepreneurial, long-term investor & partner who not only provides capital, but also and especially deal flow.
