Semapa Next was established in 2018 by Semapa with the primary objective of diversifying its portfolio, gaining exposure to promising startups and bringing Semapa Group closer to new business models, know-how, and exceptional talent. 100% owned by Semapa, Semapa Next operates independently.

We seek leadership teams with a passion for problem-solving, entrepreneurial spirit individuals with a long-term vision, strong soft skills and effective storytelling.
We value adaptability, empathy, a drive to achieve, and notable achievements, while also humble, vulnerable, and openness to feedback and ability to enact changes.

We are a Corporate VC with a sector-agnostic approach. We start to invest at Series A or, in specific situations, at Series B but can continue to participate in funding rounds along the company’s journey until IPO.

Our investment process involves a thorough evaluation of each startup’s potential, including the strength of their team, market opportunity, product differentiation, go-to-market strategy and business traction. We also consider the fit between the startup and our own expertise (access, leadership and finance), ensuring we can provide the best possible support.
