GMPVC's investment focus is primarily on consumer companies with a fully-developed product portfolio, which use media services to increase sales and establish their distinctiveness through branding. The portfolio of German Media Pool includes startups such as ABOUT YOU, momox, Home24, Alphapet, Marley Spoon, LemonSwan and URBANARA.
