A new early-stage fund for Fintech and Consumertech

Prediction Capital launches its first €30m fund generation under the umbrella of Basel-based Family Office infinitas Capital. The early-stage VC fund will invest in digital business models primarily from the FinTech and ConsumerTech sectors. A first Swiss company has already attracted the fund as investor.

Prediction Capital was launched by infinitas Capital, the private investment firm of serial entrepreneur and investor Robin Lauber and is founded by him as well as Christopher Chuffart (FinTech expert) and Kilian Graulich (ConsumerTech expert). They all share a strong investment network, professional track record and co-investing history.

Robin is a serial angel investor and entrepreneur, having co-founded his family office infinitas Capital, the real estate company GreySky Properties Holding AG and Korify Capital. His entrepreneurial journey even includes bringing Dunkin’ Donuts to Switzerland where he successfully exited the business in 2020.

Christopher Chuffart is a serial angel investor and FinTech expert. He started his career in investment banking and worked for Zurich-based VC Mountain Partners before moving to i2i Logic (Australian corporate finance FinTech) to open their European HQ.

Kilian Graulich previously led interdisciplinary teams and built digital businesses at McKinsey & Company. Additionally, he has a vast experience consulting and supporting early-stage startups as well as mentoring founding students at leading German universities.

The fund will be supported by an experienced advisory board. Among the advisors is Frederick Cunningham, CCO of the Swiss fintech company Stableton. He supports Prediction with his deep FinTech industry expertise, due diligence experience, secondaries network and with strategic support for the portfolio companies.

First investment in a Swiss start-up

The fund will be active in the DACH region and focus on ConsumerTech and FinTech innovations to be at the forefront of digital transformation. Another focus will be put into investing in businesses which share and embrace a positive effect on the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Until today, Prediction Capital has already teamed up with three exceptional entrepreneurs on their mission to transform our world for the better and invested into Heritas and House of Change, both from Germany, and Geneva-based Foodetective. Andrea Tassistro, Founder of Foodetective says: “Every relationship is personal, defined by all the moments spent brainstorming and working with each other. The team at Prediction Capital was aligned with our mission since our first discussion. From there everything unfolded naturally. We’re in it together, for the long haul.”
