In control of your own investments
Unlike other Dutch funds, Capital Mills is not an investment fund. Investors don’t pay into a fund without having any further say in the matter. Instead, Capital Mills investors can decide on a deal-by-deal basis whether or not to invest in a company and, if so, how much.
Team and Investors
Capital Mills is comprised of a network of investors and a professional investment team that manages investments on behalf of the network. These management activities include sourcing, due diligence, deal structuring, governance and exit negotiations. Investors can attribute their experience and knowledge but a less active role is also possible.
The investment team takes care of the investment management, for which you only pay a fee on the amount actually invested.
Since being founded in 2015, Capital Mills has made a successful entrance onto the Dutch venture capital market. As a result, we can boast an impressive portfolio of high-performing companies, a fascinating mix of investors, an expert investment team and a highly lucrative deal flow. Our deal flow is sufficiently high to allow us to expand our group of investors. Our rules for investors, like all of our terms and conditions, are transparent and fair to everyone concerned.
Business Angels tend to concentrate on the ‘seed capital’ phase, a phase in which startups often have only limited traction and revenue. However, Capital Mills focuses on the subsequent phases, starting from the ‘early stage’. In this phase Capital Mills invests in companies with a clear and feasible plan to achieve growth (at home or abroad) through technological innovation. Our focus is on companies with an ARR of approximately €500k or more. We take an active role, often in the form of a board position, in which we provide management support in relation to organisational and software development, market penetration, internationalisation as well as developing a sustainable competitive edge.
Participation in the network is only open to serious investors and consists of two steps. The first step consists of signing an NDA and a short agreement with no obligation to invest. This gives you access to the Capital Mills deal flow, you receive the newsletter and you can attend the periodic investment meetings. If you then decide to actually co-invest, you sign up by means of a second agreement. Then we legally also need more information from you (UBO, etc.). You can therefore participate in our network free of charge and decide per deal whether it is an interesting investment for you.
