We love building and being part of an entrepreneurial ecosystem where everybody plays their role. We want to make the Croatian entrepreneurial ecosystem the best in class so expect to see a lot of us because this is what we want to achieve!
Our reputation is our wealth.
We always stand behind our founders, in good and bad times, we mean it, you will see!
We hate getting the “long yes” so we never give …the “long yes”.
We love bold founders and we provide “Capital for the Bold”. Get it?
We at FRC have “been there, done that”. Our combined M&A and financing track records exceed $4B. We didn’t always get it right, but we’re not ashamed of it.
We can give continuous support to our startups from incubation and acceleration to scale-up and exit.
“We bring you more than money”: every VC claims it but very few actually live by it – we do. We were voted “Best Investor” in our region 2 years in a row and there is a reason for that.
We’re fine with opinions but we’d rather focus on facts.
We are no nonsense guys. We will tell you things as they are, we never intend to demean or hurt. We might seem offensive every now and then, remember, we NEVER mean bad but we’d rather be straight.
Our past experience shows that even when everything goes well it takes between 60 up to 90 days from the “yes” to the money on the account. Expect a notary, a lawyer , a banker… to always stand in the way of a fast deal, but not us.
We are agnostic and beside Alcohol, Gambling and Tobacco we are not limited to any industries.
We love bold ideas with bold founders , “Capital for the Bold”. Are you getting this?
There’s no “typical”, we’ll invest from €10k for our startup school up to €3M for our follow on type of in investments.
Fil Rouge is the French for “common thread”: the idea of giving coherence to a disparate set, or something that holds the body together like the backbone. Our “Fil Rouge” is a passion for investing in, and supporting, early stage companies which are from different industries at various stage of their life.
Avoid getting in touch via LinkedIn, our life is short, so is yours. Rather, apply directly on our web site and even better: get introduced (and apply too!) you for sure know someone that knows the cousin of someone’s BFF who knows…!
