Prediction Capital was launched by Infinitas Capital, the private investment firm of serial entrepreneur and investor Robin Lauber and is founded by him as well as Christopher Chuffart (FinTech expert) and Kilian Graulich (ConsumerTech expert). They all share a strong investment network, professional track record and co-investing history. Robin Lauber says “It is our core objective to not just support founders with capital, but partner with them on different levels by actively helping to make progress – with our expertise and network. This entails a strong understanding of today’s and future technological challenges, as well as the ability to support in solving them.” Supported by an experienced advisory board, Prediction Capital brings a strong business mentality and pioneering spirit to the table when collaborating with founders.
Another focus will be put into investing in businesses which share and embrace a positive effect on the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In particular, the fund is trying to positively influence the following SDGs with its investment strategy: Good Health and Wellbeing, Quality Education, Gender Equality, Decent Work and Economic Growth, Reduced Inequalities, Responsible Consumption and Production, Climate Action, Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions and Partnerships for the Goals.
Until today, Prediction Capital has already teamed up with three exceptional entrepreneurs on their mission to transform our world for the better and invested into Heritas, Foodetective and House of Change. Andrea Tassistro, Founder of Foodetective says: “Every relationship is personal, defined by all the moments spent brainstorming and working with each other. The team at Prediction Capital was aligned with our mission since our first discussion. From there everything unfolded naturally. We’re in it together, for the long haul.”
