Arkley - The Accelerator VC is an investor that offers a decade of experience in launching and scaling startups. We focus on seed- and early-stage startups and help them grow from prototype to IPO, within our two units: VC - Arkley-Brinc VC and Accelerator - Arkley Launchpad. 



Arkley-Brinc VC provides venture capital for hardware and IoT startups. On top of investing capital, we offer a network that reaches deep into Silicon Valley and the Pearl River Delta region. Both Arkley and Brinc have an extensive track-record of investments into hardware startups (+50 companies) as separate entities, which have now joined forces to become the European leader in connected hardware investments.

Arkley Launchpad

Arkley Launchpad is a fully tailored acceleration program for seed and early stage startups. We work as a team member with our startups to achieve mutually agreed operational and financial goals. During the program we want to share Arkley’s experience and network. Depending on the startup’s stage, our support can include: product development (from our designing and prototyping agency network), manufacturing (from our Chinese manufacturers network), distribution and sales (from our EU and US networks) and much more. We are experts in startups so we know all the necessary steps.

The core aim of the Accelerator is to raise a funding round; some startup teams can expect an investment from Arkley-Brinc VC itself.


Our companies perform best when startup communiaties flourish. That is why we organise events like Hardware Massive and Hardware Bootcamp. You will also find our team members sharing their knowledge and experience all over the globe. Whether as keynote speakers or panel judges.

Hong Kong, Warsaw, San Francisco and Vienna are where we call home. We have offices in all these locations, but are connected globally through our partners.
