Our Model

Founded by Stéphanie Hospital and Jean-Marie Messier, OneRagtime positions itself as the next generation of venture capital funding and operates as a fund-as-a-platform. Specialized in the sourcing, financing and scaling of early-stage (pre-seed to Series A) French and pan-European start-ups, OneRagtime already counts 27 companies in its portfolio and invests tickets from 1 to 4m€. OneRagtime was created with a fin-tech mindset, born from the observation that traditional Venture Capital models do not apply the same expectations of scalability to themselves as they do to their investments. With internalised technological know-how and a fully digitized investment processes portfolio, we offer our investor community the possibility to invest on a deal-by-deal basis or via our diversified fund. Our community is built of individuals, family offices, wealth managers, private banks, corporates, and institutional investors. For investors, we offer prime deal flow carefully scouted and selected by our team with a seamless, fully digitized investment process.

Our Team

We are a team of tech-savvy talent and experienced senior executives. Founded by Stéphanie Hospital and Jean-Marie Messier, OneRagtime is also guided by our wise Godfather, Philippe Bourguignon, and gathers superstar mentors such as Patrick Sayer, Philippe Carle and Laurence Bret.

Our Godfather & Godmother Committee

Our Godfather & Godmother Committee is composed of a savant mix of entrepreneurial, corporate, M&A, and private equity expertise. We believe that by broadening our horizons, we guarantee OneRagtime’s ability not only to choose the most promising investment targets, but also to scale our portfolio companies and to prepare their exits ahead of time. As with all of our internal processes, the OneRagtime Investment Committee is governed and operated with full agility. Our Investment Committee convenes both physically and digitally on an ad-hoc basis, enabling a swift and rapid decision-making process aligned with the fast pace required by our early-stage investment targets. We consistently seeks the input of our experienced and committed OneRagtime godfathers & mothers before all investment recommendations.

Business Team

Our Business Team is composed of a venture team that sources and analyses our deal-flow, an investor team that manages our investor relations and a financial & legal team that support all of our operations.

Operations Team

Since our creation, OneRagtime has bet on the importance of building an internal tech team that enables us to perform our own technological due diligences as well as build a palette of tools that enable and facilitate the entire investment process. Our Tech & Operations Team is composed of our chief operations officer, data scientists & developers, and in-house design support.
