About 3VC

3VC is a European venture capital fund that invests in a handpicked group of technology startups with global ambition. Focusing on Series A, 3VC’s entrepreneurial team invests €1-10M tickets across DACH & CEE and, together with its network, provides tireless support to its portfolio companies.

The challenges of scattered data

The 3VC team faced the pressing challenge of operating with dispersed information scattered across various places and files within the organization. Relying on key Excel workbooks that required monthly updates, they struggled to compare actuals versus planned KPIs and evaluate PC performance across their portfolio effectively.

While the team diligently tracked individual insights for each PC, obtaining a comprehensive overview demanded the creation and consolidation of a new Excel workbook. This manual processes could lead to human errors where identifying the root cause was challenging.

Moreover, the coordination of timely and accurate reporting, whether for internal purposes or regulatory compliance, posed a constant struggle. Any mistakes made along the way became difficult to trace back to their source, impeding the team’s ability to address underlying issues quickly.

Searching for a solution to unit all data

3VC’s goal was to establish a single source of truth with tracking of crucial elements, including:

  • core transactions
  • cap tables
  • KPIs
  • notes on the portfolio and board meetings
  • store key documents

In addition, the client wanted to overcome the limitations of managing multiple scattered Excel sheets and documents, seeking the flexibility and collaborative power that Vestberry’s solution could deliver.

3VC wanted to unite all their portfolio data under a single source of truth in order to:

Save time

spent on data management and reporting

Reduce errors

in data that required frequent updates

Ensure tracking

of core transactions, cap tables, KPIs, notes and documents

We quickly build templates to extract Actuals vs. Forecasts and use add-in also for quarterly reporting. In comparison to the previous way of work, doing this in Vestberry provides us with a linear history of changes which is better.
