Venture Program

UniFirst Ventures fund is focusing on early-stage deep technology and hard-science start-ups. Our team’s experience in engineering and entrepreneurship allows us to operate with high conviction and maintain a concentrated portfolio. We are working closely with universities and other academic partners to identify founders with truly disruptive technologies. Our aim is to follow closely our partner companies and act as shadow co-founders, offering not only financial resources but also strategic support. By leveraging our network of VC and PE funds we also offer our portfolio companies access to an international network and capital markets. While we aim to remain geographically balanced, we strongly believe in a physical presence so we naturally gravitate towards European companies.
