Criteria

BDMI invests out of two funds: a seed fund and a traditional early stage fund. For the seed fund, we typically prefer to see a product or service that is live in the marketplace with some initial data points that demonstrate early signs of product-market fit. We don’t usually lead seed stage investments, but prefer to join a syndicate with a lead already in place.

In BDMI’s main fund, we typically pursue Series A and Series B rounds with an initial investment of $500k to $10m plus reserves for follow-ons. We are comfortable leading an investment, co-leading or joining a syndicate with other strategic or financial investors. Depending upon the size of our investment, we usually hold voting board seats or observer seats. We invest in companies based in North America, Europe and Israel.

BDMI’s investment strategy centers on early-stage digital media tech ventures, particularly those capable of leveraging Bertelsmann’s vast media network and beauty and wellness is a sector that’s a recurring theme and that’s why the venture is open to DTC + omni-channel beauty brand both in traditional plus emerging categories like clean & minimalist beauty as well as sexual wellness. The venture is likely to invest in a beauty brand that leans mass + disruptive and where digital education can help. With a diverse geographic footprint spanning the US, Europe, notably Germany and the UK.
