Who we are:

Calm/Storm is a boutique venture capital firm and exclusive founder network, investing in super-early-stage technology startups. We look for founder/market fit and invest in purpose-driven entrepreneurs changing our life, health and well-being for the better. Writing initial checks between EUR 50k and 300k, we focus on (co-)leading Angel & Pre-Seed rounds but will also follow & co-invest in Seed rounds (rarely post Seed). With more than 30 investments in the digital health industry, our portfolio covers all verticals from diagnostics & therapeutics to consumer & care. We are investing all across Europe including Isreal & UK, in rare cases also in European Founders based in the US. We love investing in #femtech and don't shy away from investing in #sextech or other #tabootech, covering issues from chronic constipation to erectile disfunction or infertility. Some of our most prominent investments include KELEYA (GER), LVNDR (GBR) and LEDA (USA).

How we work:

We are a small fund with a very small team where everyone plays an equally important role and contributes to the success of the fund as a whole. We are always on the lookout for great additions to our team and we welcome those who feel like entrepreneurs. If you are not afraid to get involved in anything a fund needs: from marketing and ops to research and investing.

You must believe in diversity

Nearly half of our portfolio companies have diverse founding teams. The majority of our board members are female and our core team follows this same pattern of diversity. Believing in lifelong learning and personal growth, we empower people to make the best of themselves. We want to encourage applicants with diverse backgrounds to apply. We are processing all applications without regard to gender, nationality, race, color, religion, age, disability status, sexual orientation or marital status.
