About the Fund

Accelero Ventures

Accelero Ventures was established with the Polish Development Fund and private investors. The funds invested by PFR Ventures come from the Starter program.

We invest amounts up to PLN 4 million to increase the equity of companies at the pre-seed, seed or series A rund. We take up minority stakes, thanks to which the enterpreneurs and founders have a further real influence on the company’s operations, its development and the definition and implementation of subsequent goals. The level of acquired shares depends on the stage of project development, the risk associated with a given investment and the estimated capital intensity of the project being implemented.

We focus on technology companies in the area of CleanTech, BioTech, FMCG and IT / ICT, whose innovative projects will qualify as the so-called disruptive innovations.

Thanks to the many years of complementary business experience of the Accelero Ventures Team, in addition to financial support, we offer our portfolio companies assistance in many substantive areas. Thanks to the cooperation with Accelero Ventures, the enterpreneurs and founders will be able to use the support to obtain further financing, investment consulting, organizational support, as well as strategy planning and further development plans. We also help in solving operational problems and support our industry know-how.
