About Us

We are a team with more than 50 years collective experience in investing, building, scaling, and exiting companies. We have experience investing over half-a-billion in top-notch startups and venture capital funds across continents.

We believe that we are are just in the beginning of digitalisation and automation of everything. And there has never been a better time to build tech-enabled global brands and businesses leveraging Italian excellence.

We have created a community of established entrepreneurs and industry leaders to invest in new entrepreneurs.

Established entrepreneurs and industry leaders invest and support the new entrepreneurs while creating business synergies and new market opportunities.


  • Digital transformation in both existing and new businesses;
  • Disruptive technology and future industrial trends;
  • Sustainable, impactful and cycle-neutral business models;
  • Team ambition.

Feel enters a non-saturated, undercapitalised and fast-growing start-up ecosystem, whereas overlooked opportunities on the verge of scaling their growth require capital injections and strategic and operational support.
