About Us

Redstone is a Berlin based Venture Capital firm. We work with industry leaders activating their capital, knowledge and network enabling entrepreneurs to grow their businesses.

We believe in transparent and fast communication between the funds we manage and the start-ups we support. Working with our investors we enable entrepreneurs to access additional valued services alongside any capital investment.

Our approach involves enabling investments from several funds simultaneously to support our vision to invest globally at every stage and in every sector.

What we Offer

Our Partners all have backgrounds as entrepreneurs or worked in early stage start-ups which means they understand first hand what it takes to start, build and exit companies. Their experience and understanding of a myriad of different problems entrepreneurs can face helps them to.

What we look for

We’re looking for entrepreneurs that challenge the status quo and disrupt age old ways of doing things. They must have the determination and resilience to execute on their plans.

How we enable investments

At Redstone we believe that what makes Venture Capital more an Art than Science are three things: timing in the market, the winning team to execute on an idea and the way the market will develop in the future. To enable investments we need answers on why now, why this team and why this solution.
