Creating the Future Together

Support your start-ups in developing successful products and companies from innovative technologies

OCCIDENT makes a positive contribution to society through sustainable and meaningful investments in deep tech start-ups. As a strong and agile expert investor who has concrete solutions at hand and makes decisions quickly, we count on a team of highly qualified and autonomous people, who want to lead their projects to success on their own initiative, at our locations in Munich and Zug.

We invest early-stage and accompany deep tech start-ups from a very early phase. In this sense, the path to success is decisively shaped by many forward-looking and sustain­able decisions by OCCIDENT investment managers – the success of a start-up is therefore also always the success of the investment manager.

As an investment manager at OCCIDENT, you have the chance to make a real difference every day. Your intuition for the appro­priate next step allows you to reco­gnize from count­less innovative techno­logies those that have the potential to be success­ful. With your commit­ment to your portfolio companies, you decide on generating added value and pushing concrete solutions for challenges facing society.

We do it the OCCIDENT Way.

As an early-stage deep tech investor, most of our port­folio companies are spin-offs from uni­ver­sities or research insti­tutions. To further expand our colla­boration with leading uni­ver­sities and research insti­tutions, we have launched our OCCIDENT@ACADEMIA program to actively support young academic start-ups on their entre­preneurial journey.
