  • Welcome to Starfinder

    StarFinder invests in early stage projects with global potential in three major areas: life, science, ICT engineering.

    We focus on the projects that: have strong intellectual property, involve ambitious teams; and, which target large or untapped markets.

    Our fund combines private capital with public financial resources (NCBR Bridge Alfa programme). We have a strong track record of delivering above-market returns by investing in the best entrepreneurs in Poland and the Central and Eastern European (CEE) and Baltic Sea region.

I watched closely three investment arrangements initiated by StarFinder, and can say that if there were more companies like them, the startup capitalization business world would be a better place. They are professionals with business knowledge and drive to study
