Our mission

Shared Entrepreneurial Equity Investments

Investments in interesting and innovative companies are usually reserved for major investors. We would like to change that. We are convinced that everyone with a minimum investment of EUR 1,000 should have the opportunity to invest in these companies in the same way. Danube Angels therefore negotiates each investment contract with the companies personally for our investors in order to make investments possible for you that would otherwise not be available on the market in this form.

But Danube Angels are more than just a financing platform.

For Danube Angels, companies are just as important as investors. The success of our investors depends on the success of the companies. For this reason, we provide companies not only with investment capital, but also with the entire know-how of our team in the areas of tax consulting, management consulting, legal advice and financing.

Or as we say:”Smart Money”.
