Concepts2Capital is a founder-operated consulting company providing services for corporations and early stage investors.

Ten years of experience in scouting, investing and divesting of high tech companies.

My name is Eligiusz Skwara, I am a former investment manager of Leonardo Venture – a Germany based, publicly traded High-Tech Venture Capital fund. I joint the company with the mission to support the team with the management of the current portfolio and the delisting process of the fund. I stayed at Leonardo for 3 years before I founded Concepts2Capital in 2013.

Before I joint Leonardo, I worked at Ernst & Young in the transaction advisory department for five years providing due diligence and M&A services to a variety of corporations.

I hold a Business Administration Diploma from the University of Mannheim and a Master of International Business degree from the Macquarie University in Sydney receiving also the Macquarie University Prize for Investing in Emerging Markets in 2005.

„Top quartile performance in early-stage engagements results mainly from access to a great deal flow, a non-monetary value-add strategy and a portfolio construction that draws attention to the power of law."

How I work?

I have access to a great deal pipeline

feeding from a mix of reliable sources, including corporations, accelerators, universities, business angels and industry experts and the start-up community – on a pan-European scale.

I create value by providing strategic guidance

and company building support. With very few exceptions, founders of technology start-ups lack business development and management skills. For those founder teams I help to bridge this gap.

I strive to create mutually beneficial relationships

between start-ups and my clients. Having been on both sides of the table, I know what separates start-ups and companies or investors. By working closely with both parties, I try to bridge the gap and create a win-win situation where goals are being met.

I support you in successfully engaging with start-ups.
