At Iris Capital, a prominent European venture capital fund with physical presence in France and Germany, we invest in both early and late-stage companies across various verticals and topics. Our diverse portfolio includes promising companies like Exotec in warehouse robotics and Photo Freight Forwarding in insurance and claim automation. 📈

The French-German axis presents unique challenges for startups due to geographical proximity; however, at Iris Capital, we actively promote and support their internationalization phase. French startups seeking help from German investors to expand their operations across the Rhine can benefit immensely from our expertise. Additionally, having a strong presence in both ecosystems can greatly empower our portfolio companies. 🌍

We’ve noticed a growing trend of French entrepreneurs relocating to Munich, recognizing the importance of this vibrant market.
