About us

We invest our time and money. Personally.

We believe that passionate people deserve a fair chance.

We started Creative Capital Studio because traditional investors all use very similar criteria. Therefore, they zoom in on the same targets and only serve what’s already there. Co-creation and innovation are not their expertise, and their limited management fee doesn’t allow them to be hands-on.

We believe that investors should invest more based on what can be. The world is moving at such a pace that we cannot base our decisions on historic results.

And we believe that talented people with a purpose deserves a fair chance. Because where people and purpose meet, that is where innovation will take place.

We bring experience and our own passion.

The general partners of Creative Capital Studio are experienced and seasoned entrepreneurs, with a successful track record in investments and a hands-on approach.

They know an opportunity when they see it, and personally commit to growth.
