InvestmenT strategy

Being a classical early-stage investor, Zukunftsfonds Heilbronn invests in rapidly growing, technology-oriented enterprises with great future potential. The fund volume is in the three-digit million euro range. The investment capital of Zukunftsfonds does not come from investment funds, banks, saving banks or state capital. Zukunftsfonds Heilbronn is funded privately.

We offer funding to young enterprises in which we have invested with a strong focus on results, maintain close relationships with the management and accompany the enterprises in the supervisory board. Thereby, we regard ourselves as an entrepreneurial partner that supports enterprises not only through capital, but also through the industrial network of the economic region of Heilbronn-Franken, investment controlling and strategic consulting. This means that Zukunftsfonds Heilbronn uses its best endeavours to sustainably support the portfolio enterprises in which it has invested.

We effect investments at an early stage – from the seed and startup to the expansion phase – as long as it is reasonable for both parties.


We focus on the following industry sectors:

  • Automation and electronics
  • Energy and environment
  • IT and communications
  • Life sciences
  • Material sciences
  • Nanotechnology


Zukunftsfonds Heilbronn predominantly effects investments as lead investor (in major financing rounds). The investment volume typically ranges between EUR 0.5 and 10 million per financing round. This can be an “open” or “silent (mezzanine) participation. The respective terms are arranged amicably.
