Business activities

Paua Ventures provides young companies with capital in the early phases of their existence.

Der Hintergrund

Paua Ventures ist ein Venture-Capital-Investor, der in aussichtsreiche Early-Stage-Start-ups investiert. Sie treten sowohl als Lead- als auch als Co-Investor auf. Das Portfolio umfasst derzeit 18 Start-ups aus innovativen Themengebieten, unter anderem New Media Technologies, E-Commerce und Mobil sowohl im B2B- als auch im B2C-Bereich.

The requirement

Early stage companies often have outstanding business ideas, but are usually confronted with the problem of the limited resources available.

Paua Ventures supports start-ups through a proactive partnership, which goes well beyond pure capital injections. Through individual support for its portfolio companies, Paua Ventures lays the foundations for sustainable growth and long term success.

The solution

As a partner from the very beginning, Commerzbank offers Paua Ventures efficient, needs-based capital solutions, which enable the company to support start-ups individually and proactively with their new business models. Individual start-up-packages also offer tailored packages of banking services. Furthermore, Paua Ventures can count on the many years of sector and market competence of Commerzbank advisors.
