Overview

Raise capital. Conquer markets. The most individual start-up investor and mentorship program. Get access to an exclusive network of experts and investors.

Details

Pando (from Latin pandere "spread out") is a clone colony of the American aspen (tree species) in the Fishlake National Forest in Utah, USA, which is considered the oldest and heaviest known living creature on earth. The American aspen tree forms colonies, whose underground roots are connected to form a single organism. While individual tree trunks die off, new ones are added so the colony continues to exist as a whole.
On this metaphorical basis we have built up our network of exceptional founders, established companies and experienced investors. We support each other in order to achieve long-term growth.

PANDO. Ventures is an early stage start-up investor and mentorship program. We invest in a handful of precisely selected founders a year, help them to gain market traction and expose them to first-class investors in Germany.

How we work

Over the last few years we have found a way to offer significant added value to start-ups in their early stages, independent of time and space constraints. Welcome to the first decentralized accelerator program for your startup.

  1. Application Stage
    Send us your pitch deck, tell us something about your founding team and why you need our strategic support.
  2. Selection Stage
    After reviewing your documents we get in touch with you as soon as possible. We select, met up and evaluate how we can leverage your individual business potential. No liability is incurred.
  3. Development Stage
    If, after the initial discussions, we feel that we have a strong mutual added value, we start our venture development phase. We collectively work with our whole team on your pitch, establish contact with first investors and develop a solid strategy.
  4. Funding Stage
    As strategic sparring partners we get a minority share of your start-up. We always act as a partner on eye level and bring the right people and resources to the table. We find a suitable Investor (Business Angel, Institutional or others) to fund your business and support you strategically in the long term.
