WHY AND HOW WE INVEST
The Parity of People, Planet, and Profit — with Passion and Purpose ™
at a glance
AQAL AG is an exponential-tech holding company that performs direct investments across multiple stages of a start-up’s investment needs. We create successful and integrally sustainable (people, planet, profit) companies from the very beginning.
AQAL AG is using a proprietary de-risking model, the Theta Model, and an investment philosophy called Integral Investing to create superior integral returns (people, planet, and profit) at lower risks for all stakeholders.
AQAL AG invests in start-up companies based mainly in the European Union with a focus in the DACH (Germany, Austria, Switzerland) region. The technology of our investees must be proven and have a short runway to cash flow and break-even.
