HERE IS THE CONTACT FOR THOSE SEEKING INVESTMENT

OUR APPROACH

Founders In Spotlight

In our view, company founders are heroes. We strive to make their work easier and more pleasant. We are also founders, we know what it takes.

Reflexes On Our Side

We often get that gut feeling and don't know why. We trust those feelings. Decisions based on a gut feeling are not just much faster, but surprisingly they're also better.

Pull, Don't Push

Reflex has a team of A - experts. We're here for support, we don't force anything. We don't need broad veto rights. We respect opinions of the founders.

Handshakes Are Binding

We don't let lawyers play the key role. We do things simply. We look for investments where we can trust each other.
