Bonsai venture capital

"We have developed
our own venture
capital model,
with ownership and
management as a
single team"

Year 1999: our beginning
Bonsai Venture Capital came into being as a result of the entrepreneurial spirit of Javier Cebrian Sagarriga and as a diversification of the family office investments in Real Estate and Stock markets.
Our model integrates ownership and management. Managers own more than 60% of the capital stake

First Online Investments
Migration from offline content to online space became obvious and we wanted to invest in this transition. Since then we have focused on accelerating this change in the Spanish market, starting with online classifieds

Equity stakes

10% - 25%

Entrepreneurs

Complete commitment to their ventures, solid team, management skills and good synergy with our VC model

Development stages

Early Stage and Growth. Seed capital only when teams have solid track record

Exit Criteria

Flexible. Determined by the potential upside of the portfolio company, in harmony with the entrepreneur.
5 years has been our average permanence in exits during the last 12 years.

250.000 € - 2.500.000 € per company

Target markets
