About CF Venture Studio

The Venture Studio is a program by Campus Founders, an organization dedicated to empowering and accelerating founders and innovators to launch impact-creating startups in Germany and the broader international market.

The Investment Committee

The Venture Studio Investment Committee is responsible for making final decisions around the investment and subsequent admission of startups into the Venture Studio program. They have many years of national and international experience supporting founders, managing funds, and helping startups raise follow-on priced rounds.

In addition to providing startups with an honest evaluation of their business case’s overall strengths and weaknesses, they also act as mentors and bridge-builders during the program. Their vast network supports startup teams by quickly introducing the decision-makers needed to land their first customers, partners, ambassadors, talent, and more.

The committee strongly advocates using sincere and transparent cooperation as the basis for all relationships between the Venture Studio and participating startups.
