About us

Ringier Digital Ventures was founded in 2015 and is an early-stage investor in European consumer internet startups with a focus on online marketplaces, direct-to-consumer commerce and subscription business models. The company is not a strategic investor, but invests as a venture capitalist in an attractive portfolio of minority investments. The respective founding teams work closely with Ringier Digital Ventures and benefit in the development of their companies from the digital expertise of Ringier AG and the large media reach. The Ringier Digital Ventures portfolio is exclusively managed by Marcau Partners AG, which specializes in «Venture Capital as a Service».
