Investing in the future

Focussed on student entrepreneurs 
Eye level

Student entrepreneurs have a raw potential, maximum commitment, and minimal distractions. 


We help student-founders overcome the challenges of starting-up with eye-level support, relevant network and the necessary recourses. 

With pre-seed investments, Round One kickstarts the entrepreneurial journey of student entrepreneurs. 

Supporting growth, every step of the way

Founders should be able to focus on their core business, but building a business is no walk in the park.

That’s why we actively help our portfolio companies to reach their goals.

We help with eye-level support, relevant network and the resources to fully commit to their start-up.

Round One services
Founder to Founder mentoring
Access to Industry Experts

“Round One is bridging the network and knowledge gap between the young generations and the more seasoned, successful mentors, entrepreneurs and VCs that can look over their shoulders and bring value and impact. This is what will make the difference in the long run.”


Run by students, guided by profesionals 

 Round One is founded and run by students from the University of Eindhoven and Tilburg. The students are largely responsible for Round One

The students are guided by three experienced fund managers and together with the students they are responsible for the investment decisions. The fund managers form the stable core of Round One.

With the enthusiasm and energy from our students and the expertise from our professionals, we have the best of two worlds!
