Realising the potential of Europe’s entrepreneurs

At Moonfire we provide a founder’s first money in, enabling remarkable entrepreneurs to build breakthrough businesses using the power of technology. We team up with Europe’s most innovative early-stage founders, leveraging data and a network of angel investors to create exponential growth.

Where we focus

We believe a new generation of companies are providing ubiquitous, trusted access to knowledge, capital, and well-being. There are three elements driving change – Access, Efficiency, and Service Quality – what we call the Golden Triangle. The interaction between these constituents are catalysing innovation. At Moonfire, we invest in this Golden Triangle where companies efficiently leverage networks and platforms that offer a higher service quality and create exponential growth.

Capital & Finance

We believe that providing ubiquitous and efficient access to capital creates a new generation of innovation and growth for society.

Work & Knowledge

We believe broad affordable access to knowledge is accelerating learning opportunities and progress. This access is also changing the workplace and improving working environments.

Gaming, Community & Leisure

We believe that there is a broadening interest and reach in gaming, community, and leisure creating more accessible and immersive forms of personal engagement.

Health & Wellbeing

We believe technology is making healthcare more efficient, affordable, and accessible as the sector fights growing costs.

How we work

Our Tech

To create a next generation VC fund, we combine traditional strategies with data-driven approaches using proprietary technology solutions. We improve our reach and the quantity of deals we can review by expanding the breadth of our data sources, automating our investment processes to drive efficiency, and methodically evaluating our partners’ decision-making to improve performance.

Our Promise

We are inspired every day to support the next generation of founders to allow them to achieve their dreams and goals. By being there at the very beginning, we seek to build the best platform to take founders through their first phase and help them go on to raise later-stage capital.

Who we are

We are a passionate, curious and collaborative team, working to a strong set of core principles and focused on championing our founders and helping to transform their companies.
