VC for DTC Brands

Hello there,

thanks for coming to my blog. 

My name is Max Niederhofer. I've been a venture capitalist in Europe for over ten years, backing companies like (sold to CBS), Onefinestay (sold to Accor Hotels), GetYourGuide (millions of travellers per year) and Lillydoo (Germany's leading diaper brand). 

Together with my partners, I run Heartcore Capital, Europe's leading "consumer-only" early-stage VC. We manage around $500 million across five funds, with offices in Berlin, Paris, and Copenhagen. 

We have started making seed (€100,000-€500,000) and Series A (€1 to €5 million) investments in direct-to-consumer brands across Europe. If you're running this type of company, we'd love to hear from you. 

There are two easy ways of getting in touch:

- you can put yourself directly into our dealflow CRM via this link (Typeform)

- or you can email me at (this is a bit slower because I get a lot of email)

If you're not ready to chat yet, perhaps follow me on Twitter or subscribe to this blog.

Thanks for being here. 

Much love,
