WHY

Money, of course. But not just money. At Wenglein, we also invest more personal things. Time, for example. Because Wenglein isn’t all about financial gains. We want to build strong relationships with the people behind the assets. With our investment we want to help turn good ideas into great ideas in a very pragmatic way.

It’s great when things work. This is how you could describe our mantra. At Wenglein we value the talents of an engineer - because we are engineers ourselves. Incidentally, the Latin ingenium roughly translates to “meaningful invention”. We support precisely such ideas. Innovations that have a real impact on everyday life are typically also the most successful ones from an economic point of view.

To be honest, raising money for good ideas has never been a limiting factor. Money alone has never been our thing. At Wenglein, we think that with a good idea and a good team, you should also have fun. And we know what we’re talking about. Our founder Mike Wenglein had his first successful business fun as a 20-something in the mid-nineties. On this basis we offer solid advice. And, if desired, also capital - see above.

HISTORY

Wenglein Coaching & Capital is a team of highly qualified entrepreneurs and investors led by Mike Wenglein. Mike comes from a family in which creativity and economic thinking have always formed a symbiosis. For generations, the Wengleins have been active as entrepreneurs and traders, but also as engineers and artists. Mike’s father worked at the forefront of German computer development in the 1970s - or as his mother described it for her little son: dad is at the office inventing new computers.

So ‘inventing things’ also became Mike’s mantra. He first studied engineering, then business administration and finance. At the same time, he developed a completely web-based CRM platform with fellow students in the early 1990s when term CRM didn’t even exist yet. Over the years, many products and technologies were added, running successfully today at small and very large businesses in over 70 countries with millions of users. Mike was awarded the prestigious Richard Merten Prize for innovation in the healthcare sector. He is a passionate photographer, racecar driver, sailor and father of three daughters.

Mike is probably what you would call a serial entrepreneur. Over the past almost 30 years, Mike has experienced much of what separates the wheat from the chaff in the tech sector. At least enough to be able to pass on his knowledge, his ‘gut feeling’ and also his money with Wenglein Coaching & Capital.
