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.
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.
