Comate Ventures is a pre-seed fund 100% dedicated to Hardware startups. We’ve been active in Hardware for more than 10 years and brought to market dozens of pioneering Hardware products. With this fund we want to leverage the brilliant early-stage ideas to become the next big thing, changing the world as we know today.

About Comate Ventures

Entrepreneurs with fantastic ideas often struggle with finding funding for the development of their idea, which makes starting a business often hard. With Comate Ventures, we can offer them a jump based on our expertise to support the journey from idea to product ready for the market. Together with Marc Coucke and Alychlo, we want to boost the success of high-tech innovation and hardware entrepreneurs in Europe.

With this pre-seed fund, we invest in early-stage hardware companies to support them during their development process. During R&D cycles, it is important to take time to research different options and to make the right choices. Comate Ventures offers supportive capital that puts quality before speed.

With Comate Ventures, we want to boost the success of European Hardware innovations.
