KPN Ventures is the venturing arm of KPN, The Netherlands’ leading telecom & ICT company. We focus on early growth-stage investments (series A/B) in European high growth companies in the segments depicted on the right side. Our investments typically range from 0.5 to 2.5 million euro for minority stakes, building long-term partnerships, ultimately aiming for external exits, not acquisitions.
Our key investment criteria are: experienced and diverse team, innovative product with unique competitive advantage, international market potential, sustainability, potential for cooperation with KPN, commercial traction (€0.5M revenues) and attractive deal structure.
We aim to build value-creating partnerships with innovative European technology companies, accelerating innovation and growth by providing access to capital, industry expertise, technical infrastructure, professional network and channels to customers.

Collaborating with KPN Ventures was one of the best decisions we did when starting ZecOps. KPN Ventures have been a tremendous partner to ZecOps. From just being there to support us all the way to full partnership, I highly recommend anyone to work with KPN Ventures
KPN's approach to startups enablement, and the business value they have provided to Cloudify during and after the investment process was priceless to us. They are agile and fast to respond, and we are fortunate to have them as our partner
KPN Ventures moves quickly, executes on their promises and are genuinely a great partner to build visionary businesses with.
KPN Ventures gave us access to in-depth knowledge of IoT technology and supported us with operating experience to build a solid company infrastructure. Besides that, KPN Ventures took the lead in investment rounds when additional investment was needed which gave us the opportunity to focus on the global expansion instead of raising new funding.
