Boosting companies since 1998

TIN Capital, based in the Netherlands, is one of the oldest venture capital firms in Europe. It was founded in 1998 by a group of successful entrepreneurs.


Initially investing case by case, The Informal Investors Network (TIIN) quickly became a thriving community of more than 1,000 informal investors.

Several years later, the wish to make larger investments resulted in the launch of TIIN Capital, a professionally structured fund manager (GP). Afterwards, TIIN Capital welcomed – among others – family offices, corporates and institutional investors as Limited Partners 
(fund investors). 
After 25 years in business, we decided to change our name to better represent who we are today. By removing the I that stood for ‘Informal’, we did justice to the diversity of our Limited Partner community. From December 2023 onwards, we are known as TIN Capital, which stands for The Investors Network.

Our partners

TIN Capital is a key player in public-private partnerships for cybersecurity. For example, we are an active member of the European Cyber Security Organization (ECSO) and we have a second office at Security Delta (HSD) in The Hague. Our extensive network includes local ecosystems, government-related partners, corporates and other venture capital firms.

We leverage our network to boost our portfolio companies.


with impact

TIN Capital believes that impact investing as well as fostering diversity and inclusion contribute to the long-term objectives of our investment funds.

The EU has put in place a transparency framework, the Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR). By setting out how financial market participants have to disclose sustainability information, it helps investors to make informed choices. TIN Capital's European Cyber Tech Fund V qualifies as an Article 6 fund under SFDR, which is the default classification for funds.





When it comes to the United Nations' Sustainable Developments Goals, we consider in particular no. 5 (gender equality), no. 8 (decent work and economic growth) and no. 9 (industry, innovation and infrastructure).
