We believe that start-ups need smart-money, that’s why we provide our portfolio companies with strategic, operational, business development/ commercial, and recruitment support. We invest on a deal-by-deal basis and bring each one dedicated attention.

By leveraging the strength of the OneRagtime community we offer our entrepreneurs access to exceptional business development, sectorial and functional advisors and create synergies across our portfolio companies.

We’ve partnered with a top-notch investment bank to ensure that we’re always one step ahead of the game when it comes to exits. Once we’ve grown your portfolio companies, you can count on the mid to late-stage M&A deal advisory expertise of Messier Maris & Associates to find the right acquirers.

How to invest

OneRagtime aims to make investing in early-stage start-ups as accessible as possible for individuals, family offices, partners (private bankers, wealth and asset managers), corporate and institutional investors alike.

That’s why we offer our investor community the choice of investing on a deal-by-deal basis in our crowd equity vehicles or via our diversified fund.

Deal-by-deal

OneRagtime creates a dedicated special purpose vehicle (SPV) for every start-up, gathering all the investors investing with our On-Demand or Diversification offers, as well as OneRagtime itself.

Each SPV is established for the purpose of investing in the shares of a single target company.

Our Community

While many of our investors prefer to enjoy their privacy, some are happy to share their involvement with us with the world!

We get too many offers, in order to make sure that you don’t invest in every single start-up, you need someone who’s got the capability to analyse all the techniques which are involved in a very thorough manner. OneRagtime has an unrivalled network of experts that they take from.

President at AUGUSTA

The Française des Jeux much appreciated the innovative approach of this new generation venture capital platform. OneRagtime will help FDJ sourcing and investing in the best French and European start-ups. And that is why we are proud to be the first OneRagtime corporate partner.

Marine Egnell

Innovation Department - FDJ

I joined the OneRagtime community because I wanted to diversify my own investments, especially in digital. Then, I’ve known the team for a long time and it’s clearly the quality that attracted me. Third, the first investment opportunities that I’ve been introduced to were very significant and with high potential.
