Only the best or go without

We use a systematic process to find the most promising early-stage startups for our members

Invest in future growth

BlackWood Capital Partners was founded by experienced financiers who saw the need to help angel investors gain access to the leading European startups. We connect our exclusive network of members with a selected group of startups and enable them to leverage their capital, networks, and expertise to make an impact.

 

Since our establishment in 2020, we have partnered with 50+ leading incubators, accelerators, and universities across Europe to access startups that are changing the world. 

Deep network and access

We leverage our exclusive partnerships with some of the leading European accelerators, incubators, and universities in order to identify the most promising startups as early as possible.

Precise classification

Once a company has been fully screened, we present it to our investment members. We use our scoring algorithm to introduce startups to relevant investors based on the sector, ticket size, and competencies.

AI-enabled screening

We leverage artificial intelligence to conduct a deep analysis of the value proposition, strategy, team, and financial aspects of each startup and consult with our network of expert advisors.

Connection and expert guidance

We introduce members to the selected startups, which ensures a smooth process. Additionally, we provide ongoing strategic guidance regarding next steps. 

Unprecedented Reach. Impeccable Reliability.

Every month, we analyze over 300 startups within sectors including artificial intelligence, fintech, blockchain, mobility, cleantech, and insurtech. 

 

We partner with leading incubators, accelerators, and universities from 15+ countries throughout Europe, which gives us unique access to the best pre-seed and seed-stage startups.

 

Our goal is to enable early and transformational investments in companies that have the potential to change the world.
