Cocoon Ventures investments

The Cocoon Ventures invests in outstanding founders interested in self-hacking and looking at entrepreneurship as a way for self-development.


Cocoon Ventures is the next step of evolution of Contriber Ventures, one of the most active angel investors in the Baltics with over 30 investments, including: 

We search for teams who are committed, focused, and coachable. All portfolio companies must participate in the Cocoon full program. We invest in teams who are specifically interested in having us as an investor.

We prefer investing in 

A. Post-revenue startups, 
     and also

B. Pre-revenue startups with a monthly burn rate of 30k - 50k,
and at least a 6-9 months runway.


It would be good if your HQ is registered in the EU.


You should be raising seed, bridge, or pre-series-A round. Cocoon will assist in preparing the team for an A round with the help of our program and funding.

Round details

Our ticket size is from 25k - 100k depending on your stage and the appropriate mentoring program plan so that part of the investment comes in the form of cash, and the other part covers the program costs. Prices of the mentoring plans eligible for the investment range from 12k - 60k for the full 12 months program.

We are OK with leading the round, following, or coming on board alone. Our sweet spot for valuation is between €2M and €5M.

We prefer an early-exit strategy, thus we invest with the three- to five-year horizon. We see mainly three exit routes: trade sale, selling shares to other investors, or the management buyout (selling shares back to founders).

Getting in touch


We can be a good match if your startup fits the above-described criteria and you as a founder want to work on self-development even if you would not receive our investment.

In such case, please, get in touch with us


We make the final investment decision based on mutual collaboration experience gained by your participation in one of our entry-level experiences - Assessment, Training Days or Mentoring group.

.Cocoon is all about growing your personal power, and with the Cocoon Ventures, we give an extra push for your company as well.


Rein Lemberpuu

Founding Partner

I believe that all great leaders have great mentors and .Cocoon is the best framework for founders and mentors joining into one team.


Rain Kivisik

Founding Partner

I am fulfilling the role of a mentor every day as an angel investor. Even if I enjoy it as an add-on to my investment strategy, then it can be done much more professionally and .Cocoon is excellent in filling that gap for me.


Hristo Neiland

Venture Partner

I believe that all our barriers are made by ourselves, therefore with proper support, we can also take them down.
