The fund’s inves­tor base includes major insti­tu­tio­nal inves­tors such as the Euro­pean Invest­ment Fund (from the ERP-EIF faci­lity), LfA Förder­bank Bayern and NRW.Bank, as well as indus­trial compa­nies, foun­da­ti­ons and family offices, and well-known tech­­no­­logy-orien­­ted part­ners from indus­try such as ZF Ventures, ZEISS Ventures and Montan-Stif­­tung-Saar. A large part of the capi­tal commit­ments of over EUR 75 million came from exis­ting investors.

The Munich-based Matter­wave team has been an estab­lished finan­cing part­ner for Euro­pean start­ups in the deep tech sector for many years. The focus is on auto­ma­ting, digi­tiz­ing and impro­ving the resource effi­ci­ency of the entire indus­trial value chain: from the auto­ma­tion of rese­arch, deve­lo­p­ment and design to the trans­pa­rency of the logi­stics chain, produc­tion opti­miza­tion and after-sales support of products in custo­mer use.
