Orthos Ventures is an investment fund for early stage high tech and data science ventures. The fund was founded and is managed by Bas Oberndorff and Jeroen Thijs. We started this fund because of our vision that these technologies will become an (even) stronger and intricate part of our lives in the near and midterm future. And because we are fascinated by technological progress and inspired by forwardthinking academics and entrepreneurs.
As a team we have ample and successful experience in supervising start-ups. We have played a key role in starting and scaling all of our collaborations. Our tenure as ATG Europe’s Co-CEOs brings a wealth of experience in organisation, strategy, business development, finance, talent management, and product development to the table. Furthermore, we have a very broad network that we unlock and use in our collaborations.
