for investors & companies


The event series "Invest and Connect" of the European Super Angels Club (ESAC) is a Europe-wide start-up scouting and pitching competition. During the year, exclusive pitching events will take place at eight locations in Europe and in New York. This year the focus is on start-ups that are active in the "Smart Mobility" market.

The European Super Angels Club reports that to date it has invested in companies with a current value of €55.3 million. A significant increase in the company valuation of €12.8 million resulted from the Club's own syndicate fund that had been increased by €4.2 million by Club members last year. The Club's own fund vehicle (EXF Alpha) is domiciled in Luxembourg and is managed by the Club Board of Directors. 

At previous awards, the ESAC examined and evaluated over 2,000 start-ups. Of these, 100 were analysed in detail and 50 start-ups were invited for a live pitch at the exclusive events. Only the six winners of the national qualifying rounds had the chance to stand on stage at the finals and bring home the pan-European award. Previous winners, such as Smartlane (AI European winner 2019), were not only able to attract the attention of famous investors, but also gained visibility. 

Deutsche Börse Venture Network supports the event series along with other partners such as Zürcher Kantonalbank (ZKB), Liechtensteinische Landesbank (LLB) and several SMEs as well as companies from all sectors of the mobility landscape. 

About the European Super Angels Club

The European Super Angels Club is the largest pan-European investor network, which was founded by partners of KPMG Austria and the venture capital specialist Venionaire Capital in 2017. The aim of the network is to make outstanding talents and their start-ups visible throughout Europe and prepare them for top investors. The network includes business angels, high-net-worth individuals, family offices, venture capital firms and corporate innovation units. The members combine their individual financial strength and know-how to support fast-growing companies from Europe. To this end, the club organises pitching competitions throughout Europe with changing focus topics.
