CapCo is the investment vehicle 100% owned by Cornelia Müller. Having a strong background in Mobile Telecoms and since 2005 in Web and Mobile Startups herself, Cornelia has invested as an angel investor in several startups all over the world, incl. South East Asia, Africa, Middle East and of course Europe. I enjoy helping the startups get off the ground in a very early stage, before a ''proper'' first investment round can take place. My focus is on digital, mobile (Apps-based) and mostly B2C solutions and I have also been part of one of the earliest impact investment funds in SEA. Currently B2B and agriculture are topics that I want to explore more. Having recently moved to Denmark (with my Danish husband) and after spending almost 20 years all over the world, it is now time to focus on startups here and in Europe. I grew up in Germany and Switzerland and also still have some roots there.
