Investing in Seed Stage Startups

Raising from Haatch

We invest in companies with the potential to be a category killer, by disrupting the vertical they are in. Companies which are enabling digital transformation.

With the rise of gig-economy, on-demand enabled consumers, you will see this reflected in our existing portfolio from Marvel, which breaks down barriers in the digital design community to enable anyone to design, to Buymie, which provides one-hour grocery delivery to consumers across Dublin. B2B SaaS and pro-consumer tech also continues to drive significant growth with the number of corporate acquisitions growing year over year and this is reflected across our portfolio with Veritonic, Scurri, Elevaate (now exited) and

Moving forward our focus will continue to be on well-known markets in addition to making investments in new markets being fuelled by technology enablement, including smart devices, artificial intelligence, blockchain and mixed reality.

Haatch investment stages see investments focusing on “Initial Seed” funding, where Haatch provides the first and only initial money into the company, as well as “Seed” funding, where Haatch provides first or second money into the company and fills or syndicates the round. With “Follow On” funding, Haatch makes additional investments into existing companies which have become scale-ups.

Typically, our investments range from £100k – £500k cheques, however, we participate in rounds up-to £2m when we find businesses that score highly across our key pillars.

We like to get to know founders early so if you’re a founder, building a product to enable digital transformation, and like the sound of Haatch, please do share your pitch deck with us via email.
