Our Solution

AQAL AG is a Munich-based, exponential-tech holding company that performs direct investments across multiple stages of a start-up's investment needs, ranging from early stage to growth stages. We create successful and integrally sustainable (people, planet, profit) companies from the very beginning.

The Theta Model

AQAL AG is using a standards-based, 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 including investors, the environment, and society at-large. In this investment style, high financial returns are inseparable from a high impact on Environmental and Social responsibility, ethical corporate Governance (ESG), as well as cultural aspects and happiness factors.

The De-Risking Process

To reduce the investment risk, we perform not only first class financial and legal due diligence but adhere also to Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) measurements as defined by the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investing (UN PRI), the Global Impact Investing Network with the Impact Reporting and Investment Standards (IRIS), the Global Impact Investing Rating System (GIIRS) by B Lab, the International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC), and Sustainable Asset Management (SAM).

In order to achieve our goals and to develop integrally sustainable companies from the very beginning, we provide entrepreneurial and hands-on business as well as leadership support along the value chain to all our investees.
