What is essential to scaling your business? If your answer is ‘capital’ then, yeah, you’re right. But capital is more than just cold hard cash. The importance of human capital is something founders often overlook. That is what Amsterdam’s Volta Ventures and Tech Rise Ventures noticed, too. Both, in their own way, are aiming to bridge the gap between financial and human capital.
Volta Ventures partners with LevelUp
Volta Ventures provides seed and early-stage capital for internet and software startups in the Benelux. As such, they’ve provided their fair share of financial capital to startups like fintech Blanco or deep tech companies such as Sentiance. While investing, Volta found that it is not all about the cold hard cash. “Human capital is one of the biggest barriers to their growth”, says Volta’s managing partner Sander Vonk.
