Investments are made together with independent, private co-investors who bring their knowledge and expertise to the table together with capital funds. Currently, these private co-investors are a network consisting of experienced Business Angels and successful entrepreneurs. This co-investment strategy with politically independent decision-making processes is a keystone of the BABEG Venture Fund. The idea is for the venture fund and the high-performance network to be of strategic use to the target companies and to help them develop and penetrate the market more quickly. At least one third of the capital required per investment must come from private co-investors.
Early-stage investments amount to EUR 50,000; investments in growth projects can be up to 1.5 million EUR. The scalability of the business model is a prerequisite for the investment.
The fund is managed by the KWF Carinthian Business Support Fund.
