WEPA Ventures is our corporate venturing arm through which we manage our start-up investments and collaborations.
We invest in companies and start-ups that focus their business model on sustainable hygiene solutions or offer products in the areas of alternative raw materials and sustainable packaging.
In addition, we are building our own start-ups that contribute to our mission:
To offer products and concepts that provide a safe hygiene experience and contribute to the well-being of millions of consumers across Europe - every day, everywhere.
Our WEPA mentors support founders with their expertise in sales and logistics and various other areas.
We establish value-adding relations between founders, WEPA business units and our large network throughout Europe.
To leverage complementary competencies and overlapping strengths, we initiate and foster collaborations between start-ups and WEPA Group.
We focus on B2C products/services in the hygiene segment and alternative raw materials/packaging solutions.
We invest in exceptionally talented, motivated and resilient founding teams.
Proven product/market-fit and a robust monetarization strategy are amongst our key investment criteria.
Our start-up investments have access to a financially attractive market and follow clear growth goals.
We generally invest in early stage ventures (seed, series A) that are at least ready for market.
To generate strategic relevance for WEPA and ensure that we can optimally support founders, the core competencies of our portfolio companies and WEPA are complementary or mutually reinforcing.
