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.

 

Present
We invest in domestic internet companies with great mobile focus and global ambition

Development stages

Exit Criteria
