Investing in companies that stand out.

Venture Capital is an outperforming asset class with a significant alpha, offering non-correlation with other asset classes.
This makes it a perfect complement to an investment portfolio.

However, the following figures show how difficult success is for investors in the early phases:

5 out of 10
investments lead to write-offs between 50-100%.
2 out of 10
companies return the invested capital.
only 2
companies double their value.
only 1
company "flies".

Venture capital investments as a service for institutional and private investors.

Let me support you to build and manage a successful venture capital portfolio. My approach addresses 4 phases:


Strategy & Deal Flow

  • Sharpen of your investment thesis
  • Derivation of congruent scouting profiles
  • Pan-European in & out-bound deal flow
  • Presentation of potential investments including highlights & red-flags


  • Due diligence support
  • Access to industry & tech experts
  • Access to public & private co-investors
  • Negotiation & contracting support


  • Monthly investment controlling
  • Board membership
  • Non-monetary value add strategy
  • Leverage networks

Exit Readiness & M&A

  • Align goals and expectations
  • Exit readiness preparation
  • Examine exit options and identify potential buyers
  • M&A Process

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

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

My name is Eligiusz Skwara (41) 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 investments 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."
Eligiusz Skwara, Founder
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 internationalization support into the DACH region. For each of the investments, I will agree on a set of working principles up-front with the Investee Company’s management team and structure strategy sessions to review progress.

I work closely and in partnership with the management team

throughout the life-cycle of the Investee Company’s business especially focusing on management support around strategy and business development, corporate relation development, fundraising and the preparation of a successful exit.
