PFR Ventures operates under the fund of funds (FoF) formula. This means that the funds it manages first go to venture capital funds, which then invest in innovative companies. Such solution allows, among other things, for the involvement of private investors who entrust funds in parallel to PFR Ventures. In addition, venture capital funds are managed by experienced managers. They are able to properly assess the investment potential of companies and then help them develop in such a way that they increase their value and consequently multiply the invested capital.
Between 2017 and 2023, PFR Ventures invested in 32 VC funds under the Starter, Biznest, Open Innovation, KOFFI and NCBR CVC programmes. The investment horizon of all funds that were injected with PFR capital reached 2023. In the following years, the management teams will focus on the development of companies (including investments in so-called follow-on rounds) and the gradual exit of deals (so-called exits). In parallel, PFR Ventures launched the second edition of the programmes in 2024, which was again based on EU capital.
