KPN Ventures is the venturing arm of KPN, The Netherlands’ leading telecom & ICT company. We focus on early growth-stage investments (series A/B) in European high growth companies in the segments depicted on the right side. Our investments typically range from 0.5 to 2.5 million euro for minority stakes, building long-term partnerships, ultimately aiming for external exits, not acquisitions.
Our key investment criteria are: experienced and diverse team, innovative product with unique competitive advantage, international market potential, sustainability, potential for cooperation with KPN, commercial traction (€0.5M revenues) and attractive deal structure.
We aim to build value-creating partnerships with innovative European technology companies, accelerating innovation and growth by providing access to capital, industry expertise, technical infrastructure, professional network and channels to customers.
