about us

We invest early stage (Seed, Seed+ and Series A) in businesses developing frontier technologies. We like to be the first venture investor and we aspire to follow our investments. We invest in moonshots; we are patient; we lead; we follow. We are called Luminous because we illuminate European deep tech and dare to invest where others don’t. Our success is entirely dependent on the success of our companies. We win when our founders succeed so we work hard to make that happen.

Tim Fell, CEO, Synthace

Isabel and her team are a very rare commodity – a European VC with a true Silicon Valley VC mentality and skills. Added value means properly rolling their sleeves up and joining in, whether it is to help shape go-to-market strategy, build detailed models or generally identify and remove friction points to accelerate the business. They are masters of knowing how to blend technology development with market execution. They are direct and demanding yet patient with a long-term perspective. As a CEO I have never hesitated to pick up the phone for advice, and always been glad I did.
