Investment Focus

The AQAL Group invests both in state-of-the-art exponential technology companies and infrastructure projects, which have the potential for integral impact, including substantial growth as well as an environmental and social benefit (UN SDG).

 

We focus on seed, early, and growth stage companies. Their leadership team must be strong, their technology must be proven and have a short runway to cash-flow break-even. Once the technology is ready to roll-out, we also invest in large scale infrastructure projects based on these innovations, e.g. energy-efficient data centers, or renewable energy generation.

Our regional focus is the European Union with a main emphasis on DACH (Germany, Austria, Switzerland). A few selected investments are also made in the San Francisco Bay Area.

According to our integral philosophy, the business models of our investees must be transferable to other countries, be scalable to market leadership, and deliver sustainable and risk-adjusted returns on multiple bottom lines: Parity of People, Planet, and Profit — with Passion and Purpose.

Given the investing expertise, background, and entrepreneurial experience of our founders, we are focusing on three main sectors of innovation for life in the 21st century:

  1. Exponential Technology & Digital Evolution: Internet Infrastructure, Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain & Financial Tech, B2B IT Solutions, Industry 4.0
  2. Green Technology: Renewable Energy, Energy Efficiency, CleanTech, Circular Economy
  3. Life in the 21st century: Future Mobility, Nutrition & Agro, Life Science & Health, Med Tech, Medical Apps, Media & Entertainment Tech
