Our added value

Media power aimed at increasing value

At SevenVentures, we provide support for our portfolio companies within the ‘Media for Equity’ and ‘Media for Revenue’ investment models. Supplying you with the most effective advertising slots across various media services is the core value of our partnership approach. Advertising allows portfolio company products to be presented in a visually emotional way, which builds trust, improves brand awareness, and forms effective barriers to market entry, all building toward increased sales. We reach over 14m viewers daily across the six free TV channels in our group, ProSieben, SAT.1, kabel eins, sixx, ProSieben MAXX and SAT.1 Gold. In addition, through our group equity holdings in the digital and e-commerce sectors, we have access to a wide range of additional media platforms. Together with our many years of experience and a common understanding of your product, sector and competitors, we can create a highly customised media campaign and combine it with our specialised approach to monitor rejections and analyse results in order to provide you with the best possible support.

Capital for flexible growth

In our capacity as leading TV media investor we directly invest our own resources, therefore we are not bound by traditional venture capital investment regulations such as minimum investment periods or specific levels of investment. This allows financing to be addressed with the necessary degree of flexibility. As a general rule, we only make capital investments combined with media power in selected companies that are heading towards profitability. If there is a need for greater investment, we can call on our network of institutional investors and family offices, which can prepare larger investments. Furthermore, there is always the possibility that we will make a larger investment and acquire a strategic majority stake in the company. These investments are then passed on to our sister companies such as 7Commerce and 7Travel, which both hold the group’s strategic portfolio investments.

Unique synergies of the ProSiebenSat.1 Group

Our media power and group synergies have decisive effects on the success stories of our clients. These synergies include digital expertise, cross-marketing campaigns with other e-commerce platforms or online/performance marketing, support with know-how in the creation and production of TV spots through our in-house agency or in cooperation with external partners, as well as algorithmic analysis and tracking of TV spots. A solid partnership on fields such as media planning and 360° TV campaigns enhance the success opportunities of product placement, sponsorship and other advertorials strategies.

Tirendo

Initial situation

Tirendo was formed in 2012 with the short-term aim of internationalisation. The intention was to achieve this through fast and sustainable brand development.

Measures

Marketing campaigns launch guidance and support. Spectacular media campaign with Sebastian Vettel as brand ambassador.

Result

Turnover in the tens of millions achieved in the 2nd year of operations. Successful trade sale exit to Delticom.

"I am convinced that it’s possible to roll out a business in any new market with the right marketing mix and strategic partners. So we took the over-the-counter tyre market online. With Sebastian Vettel as brand ambassador and SevenVentures as partners who used their expertise and experience to provide us with advise and support in developing the business, we had a successful advertising campaign which sent our public profile skywards. On this basis, we were quickly able to broaden our network of delivery and assembly partners and expand internationally."

Balls of Steel. Three words, or rather one award, which has caused quite a stir over the past few days. Launched by smoothie brand true fruits, the Balls of Steel award honors entrepreneurs who display courage, decision-making strength and steadfastness in the face of market pressure. These qualities not only describe the award, but also reflect true fruits’ core brand. We spoke with Nicolas Lecloux, co-founder and CMO of the company, who describes how this mindset also drives their marketing strategy.

SEVENVENTURES PITCH DAY MAKES ITS FIRST-EVER PRESENCE AT DLD NYC

SevenVentures will award an extremely lucrative prize to the most innovative, groundbreaking American business.

 

New York, NY—April 3rd, 2017SevenVentures, the investment arm of Germany`s largest TV broadcaster ProSiebenSat.1 Group, is bringing its most rewarding competition for businesses, SevenVentures Pitch Day (7VPD), to DLD NYC for the very first time.

7VPD is on the hunt for innovative consumer goods companies with physical products who are already successfully established in the U.S. market and ready to expand into the German and ultimately the European market. ProSiebenSat.1 Group will support the winner with advertising power on its seven free TV channels, its extensive network in the retail sector as well as further group synergies such as cooperations with online platforms.

A total of three companies will be in the running to compete live on stage at DLD NYC on May 11th, 2017. These representatives will be given the opportunity to pitch their companies in front of a highly-regarded jury as well as a selected audience of entrepreneurs and business owners.

“In an accelerated world, well established companies should not miss the right moment to expand their business to Germany as a bridgehead and then throughout Europe. If they hesitate, cloned ideas will appear and entry barriers go up. The 7VPD is the perfect accelerator for this expansion,” said Florian Pauthner, CEO of SevenVentures.

As a prize, SevenVentures is providing a full-service media package composed of a professional TV commercial and 300K Euros TV advertising spend on the seven free TV channels of ProSiebenSat.1 Group. The NYC winner will also join the main SevenVentures Pitch Day at the DLD Berlin conference in October 2017 with the chance to win 3 million Euros worth of TV media. In addition, SevenVentures will facilitate the production of a custom-tailored TV spot to enable the winning company’s reach to customers in a targeted manner on the TV group’s channels.

According to Julien de Préaumont, Chief Marketing Officer and winner of the 7VPD in 2015, "Winning SevenVentures Pitch Day was a great opportunity for Withings. We competed against four other amazing health & fitness companies and won! The TV campaign has given us the chance to talk about connected health to a wider audience of new consumer markets. Thanks to SevenVentures, we were able to reinforce our leadership in the connected scale market in Germany.​”

SevenVentures Pitch Day has been held each year since 2012. Past winners include Withings, Cashboard, GetYourGuide, and Popsa.

Founders from around the U.S. can register to win the media package worth millions at www.sevenventures.de by April 19th, 2017.
