About us.
Pando (from Latin pandere "spread out") is a clone colony of the American aspen (tree species) in the Fishlake National Forest in Utah, USA, which is considered the oldest and heaviest known living creature on earth. The American aspen tree forms colonies, whose underground roots are connected to form a single organism. While individual tree trunks die off, new ones are added so the colony continues to exist as a whole.

On this metaphorical basis we have built up our network of exceptional founders, established companies and experienced investors. We support each other in order to achieve long-term growth.

PANDO. Ventures is an early stage start-up investor and mentorship program. We invest in a handful of precisely selected founders a year, help them to gain market traction and expose them to first-class investors in Germany.

...we got to know Pando Ventures, a so-called start-up accelerator. They took us into their care, not only financially but also in passing on knowledge. They coached us full-time. All in all, they invested several 100.000 euros in us and our vision, says Zacharias. That acted like a catalyst. The PANDO guys even took us to business meetings with big clients. Who at our age is able to sit in a skyscrapers boardroom in Frankfurt to pitch? - he says with shining eyes."

Application Stage
Send us your pitch deck, tell us something about your founding team and why you need our strategic support.

After reviewing your documents we get in touch with you as soon as possible. We select, met up and evaluate how we can leverage your individual business potential. No liability is incurred.

We find a suitable Investor (Business Angel, Institutional or others) to fund your business and support you strategically in the long term.
