We are a collaborative circle of entrepreneurs connecting curious and bright minds across the world to invest jointly in promising ventures.


PAWAO is a tribe of innovative experts and investors. We provide curated deal flow, professional investment structures, due diligence, and class-A sector expertise through our high-profile network.

»We respect and trust each other as business people, but first and foremost as human beings.«

All network members get the opportunity to jointly invest as a group of co-investors. Contrary to a fund, we invest deal by deal. We focus on angel and early stage as well as a selected range of later stage investments. Investors decide independently if they want to join a specific deal.

We follow a people-first approach with a strong focus on ethics to drive high-impact results for our investment community and support the companies we invest in with our expertise and network to develop their trajectory for success.
