Round Ventures, a holding company founded by a group of successful internet entrepreneurs, has made its first appearance with the acquisition of 100% stake in fast-growing founder platform BaseTemplates. Round Ventures goal is to build the leading platform to help founders raise capital more quickly and efficiently through software, templates, and teamwork. Further add-on acquisitions are planned.
Berlin-based BaseTemplates has helped more than 25,000 founders to start, grow and raise funding for their businesses. Main products are templates and services sharing the best practices of successful entrepreneurs. BaseTemplates is profitable, growing and the majority of revenue is coming from the US and Western Europe. Since 2022, it’s been operated by venture studio Wizard Ventures.
Maximilian Fleitmann, Managing Director of BaseTemplates and Co-Founder of Wizard Ventures commented: “Earlier this year, when we were crafting the future growth strategy for BaseTemplates we realized there are so many areas in which we can add value to founders but we don’t have the resources to make our ideas a reality. As we were looking for a new partner we came in contact with the team behind Round Ventures and their vision of building a leading player in the field. And it felt right from the start.”
Round Ventures Co-Founder added, “BaseTemplates is a well known brand in the startup fundraising ecosystem and has proven over and over again that serving founders is core of their DNA. The team around Maximilian Fleitmann has shown strong execution and made BaseTemplates one of the go-to places for fundraising resources. We are tremendously excited to continue the journey and add our strengths to it.”
BaseTemplates will continue to be a stand-alone brand, that will be expanded through integration of software solutions for founders and fundraising assistance, benefitting from Round Ventures extensive investor networks on the debt and equity side.
