During my 19 years at b2venture I have seen a lot of changes and I had the privilege to get to know about 3’000 Business Angels. I can say that there are not two Angels Investors who are the same. At b2venture we always have tried very hard to get access to the best and to work with them. In my eyes they are the foundation of b2venture. Their knowledge and experience is exceptional and they not only grant us access to the best investments but also share their wisdom on challenges or important decisions in the startup scene.
