HardGamma Ventures is a seed and early stage Venture Capital firm, which was established to continue successful angel investments made by HardGamma Consulting. We look for projects within software / hardware / Internet / mobile space, which already have existing product or service and are proven to gain initial customer or revenue traction. We usually invest in companies located in Poland, London or US, focusing on teams from Poland and CEE. We also invested in two editions of Springboard accelerator (Springboard London and Springboard IoT – one of the first accelerators focused on hardware/IoT) and we are one of the investors in Techstars London. Within HGV we also run own accelerator GammaRebels.

Examples of our successful investments include:
Codility, winner of Seedcamp 2009 (HardGamma Consulting cofounded the company in 2009, exited in 2013)
Mellow, the smart sous-vide machine
– Intelclinic NeuroOn, the most successful Polish project on Kickstarter, winner of LeWeb’13
SHWRM, the largest Polish e-commerce marketplace with fashion by independent designers
Hassle.com (formerly Teddle), an online marketplace that matches busy people with local, trusted cleaners.
