Climate change and the current economic environment require a radical change in the real estate industry. Digital startups („PropTech/ConstructionTech“) provide crucial solutions and are growing accordingly. Equity investments in these companies consequently offer attractive return opportunities.
Startups with established products („growth stage“) statistically have a lower risk of default and thus offer a particularly attractive risk/return profile compared to early-stage investments.
However, until now, private investors have not had access to the growth stage, as these investments are traditionally reserved for financially strong institutional investors – we are changing that.
THE ERIC OPPORTUNITY CLUB GIVES ACCESS TO SELECTED GROWTH STAGE DEALS
With PT1, the leading German PropTech venture capital fund*, we analyse more than 1,000 companies p.a. and have made more than 20 early-stage investments since 2018.
With the ERIC Opportunity Club, we have additionally been investing on a club deal basis since 2023 in the most promising companies that are already too mature for PT1.
For the first time, we are offering qualified private investors (usually from 100 TEUR**) the opportunity to invest deal-by-deal together with us and other renowned experts.
CLUB DEALS ALREADY CARRIED OUT
Wunderflats, a digital platform for temporary furnished accommodation, has strong growth momentum due to (1) sustainable growth in its core business, (2) its successful market entry in France and (3) a substantial partnership with the German Federal Ministry of the Interior. PT1 has been a shareholder since the early stages with corresponding legal insider knowledge, invested up to the allocation limit in the current financing round and was able to pass on exceeding subscription rights to the club.
The multi-award-winning startup ecoworks makes an essential contribution to climate neutrality with the serial refurbishment of existing buildings. We were able to make use of subscription rights not usable through PT1 and thus provide our club investors with access to a EUR 22 million financing round with an international consortium of investors.
„Through the ERIC Opportunity Club, I can join forces with well-known entrepreneurs and conveniently participate in more mature startups that I would otherwise generally not be able to access on my own.“
— Michael Busch, Spokesman of the shareholders and long-time CEO @ Thalia
„From my point of view, an important quality mechanism of the ERIC Opportunity Club is that only investments in which the initiator itself invests are processed here. This avoids conflicts of interest.“
— Marcus Lehmann, Managing Director @ LAVA ENERGY
