While successfully leading his family owned business LAUDA for 25+ years, Gunther Wobser realized it would be best for his company to innovate in Silicon Valley. After setting up an Innovation Lab at Plug & Play in Sunnyvale, Gunther discovered his interest in startups. Thus he became an Angel Investor, was invited to join the Band of Angels and founded the US company mango.ventures, LP and German counterpart GmbH & Co. KG to invest in promising startups.
We invest in the promising combination of hardware with intelligent software.
No hardware only
No pure software

We know that this might exclude some of the most promising startups but we like to focus on what we have expertise in.
Question & Answers
In which phase should a startup be?
As most angel investors, Gunther likes to see a finished product which is ready to sell. Usually there is already some traction and sales should take off the following year. The first months of a startup are usually funded by friends and family before the first external investors come in the so-called seed phase. For more information see the Band of Angels website.
