Do you have what it takes?
We value open and honest communication. Our communication lines are always short and you’ll receive feedback and assistance in a direct and constructive way.
Be it with long term strategic plans or daily operations issues, we assist our portfolio companies with our personal expertise. In addition, we leverage the knowledge within Lely.
We understand the dynamics of a startup, building up and keeping momentum is key. Our decision making processes are simple and quick, and we focus on what is best for the company.
What we do:

We can assist you with small and big questions, urgent and non-urgent matters, simple and complex situations. Building solid relationships and providing a fitting partnership for autonomous and independent entrepreneurs is at the core of our business.

As a part of the Van der Lely family office we have close ties to Lely, a market leader in agricultural (dairy) robotics and innovator at its core. Lely has gained extensive experience in hardware and software engineering, product development and manufacturing, setting up (international) supply chains and much more across a range of industries and applications, which we leverage for our portfolio companies.

We have close relationships with industry partners, knowledge and research institutes and private and public investors, which we put to good use. An introduction to the right partner at the right time can make the difference.

Being part of a family office we look at venture capital with a long-term view and are committed to keep supporting our portfolio companies in alignment with the entrepreneurs and co-investors.
