Our investment thesisWhat we look when analyzing a company:
Seeking full-time dedicated founders, preferably with previous experience in other startups, with complementary profiles.
Investing in companies that operate in rapidly growing industries with large total addressable markets, excluding niche or local sectors.
Encomenda looks for already incorporated companies in Southern Europe. We can invest 10% of our fund in startups located in the US / UK.
Ideally digital startups that have launched their products and validated them by getting their first growing revenues.
In few cases we invest in product development stages when we find second-time or outstanding entrepreneurs.
