IQMotive finds investor thanks to Golden Egg Check

IQMotive brought StartCapital Partners on board as an investor. Golden Egg Check helped IQMotive gain insight into the relevant investors through the Investor Search service and subsequently brought IQMotive into contact with StartCapital Partners.

IQMotive has created intelligent software that enables garages/workshops to better plan their resources and make better use of their capacity (both machines and people).

Financial details have not been disclosed, but given the size of the StartCapital Partners fund (€4 million) and their ambition to realize more than 10 deals, we expect an investment amount of €100-400k.

Looking for an investor or startup? Join CapitalTourXXL

The Amsterdam Capital Week will be held from 24 to 28 September. There are several events that investors can take part in to meet startups (see Events).

One of those events is the CapitalTourXXL on September 25th. This time it is based on invitation-only, so only the startups that are selected by investors (or me) can participate.

We help CapitalTourXXL to ensure that there is smart matchmaking between the notified startups and the participating investors.

For investors

The idea is that startups on the bike come to the offices of investors and you get the chance to meet some interesting startups in a short time. Even if you don’t have an office in Amsterdam, you can join, as the organization will find a nice spot for you.

Are you interested in to join as an investor? Let me (or Simone Schoutens) know, then we will see if we can place you.

For startups

Golden Egg Check helps YES!Delft with matchmaking event startups and investors

Golden Egg Check helped YES!Delft to organize ‘meaningful matches’ between startups and investors at today’s Meet the VCs event. In other words, making sure that startups would get in touch with relevant investors and vice versa.

With Golden Egg Check, we keep track of all venture capital investors that are active in the Netherlands. We used this database to make an investor selection for each of the participating YES!Delft startups. This resulted in a startup-VC matrix that we used to see what the ‘must-have’ VCs were for this edition of Meet the VCs. We invited them to be present at some relevant 1:1 meetings with startups, and a whopping 80% of them were actually present.

It took us (and especially the people at YES!Delft) quite some time to get the preparations right. But the thing is, our time investment made sure entrepreneurs and VCs could spend theirs effectively.

We hope to see some nice deals as the result of today’s matches!

Capital Valley — Where the Dutch VCs are situated

Sand Hill Road in Silicon Valley is notable for its concentration of venture capital firms. But is there a Dutch Sand Hill Road too?

At Golden Egg Check, we keep track of all Dutch VCs. We made a Google map that includes all of them.

They’re literally everywhere but there is a high concentration of venture capital in what I call ‘Capital Valley’
