Nothing more than real support!

Who we are

As a start-up seeking funding you simply know what it takes to shake up the logistics sector. To take things to the next level, you are looking for partners in crime that have you covered along the way. You have come to the right place: Welcome to F-Log Ventures!

We are an independent venture capital fund managed by former business founders and seasoned investment managers. We focus on start-ups in need of Seed or Series A funding that have the potential to disrupt the logistics industry. We define logistical transactions as a merger of information, material, and financial flows. So it’s a given that young companies working to improve these areas pique our interest.

To save time and money on the way to building a successful company, we provide access to innovators and experts as well as the broad network of the entire Fiege Group – one of the most innovative and successful international logistics groups. Together we aim to pair up people, ideas, and capital to scale and support ground-breaking business models in our portfolio.

As a financial investor, we support young companies in the creation of outstanding value. Our focus for their next level growth is on VC metrics and exit perspectives.

What we do

We target companies that

“solve real problems”

Companies that take a customer-centric approach by applying a scalable business model with a focus on logistics.

“and have global potential”

Strong teams that open doors to global markets and shape the big players of tomorrow.

Our approach

“There’s money”

It is our conviction that our portfolio companies best benefit from our partnership while still in the very early stages of their development. Our initial investment therefore starts at € 500,000.

“and then there’s smart money”

Even though there is no blueprint on how to build a successful company, the possibility to receive support from one of Europe’s most successful logistics companies is surely an ideal shortcut on the way to scaling your business.

Smart money is not just a buzzword for us.
It’s our mission.
