Lisiecki and Blaisdell have partnered to create Copernicus Ventures Int. A venture platform to support entrepreneurs

Copernicus Ventures Int. aims to support the development of international entrepreneurship through both equity and support for European companies seeking to become global and benefit from capital paradigms of the US market. With far more resources for high-risk/high-return initiatives existing through the American capital market and to a much greater extent than the rest of the world, the platform that Copernicus provides a unique VC like structure with a proprietary and personal process will allow international entrepreneurs to maximize their potential and the valuation of their project. In turn, Copernicus establishes the opportunity for American and global investors to gain access to the best breed of European startups which will be transformed into American entities.
Copernicus is founded by an unprecedented team which also includes a woman entrepreneur who though years of effective entrepreneurial, technology and media activities, creates platforms of opportunities for not only her start-ups such as the California Space Center, but also carefully selected European companies and start-ups. “The dynamic and explosive growth of US start-ups and their valuations will be unlocked internationally. I am looking forward to using my strategy and resources and position in Silicon Valley and Hollywood, to create a new economic momentum and be a game changer for European start-ups. This is not another trip to Stanford; this is real business and a potential model disruptor in the making. My US partners are standing by” - said Eva Blaisdell.

The formation agreement of Copernicus Ventures Int. was struck during AlwaysOn on NASDAQ in New York City between Eva Blaisdell and Michael M. Lisiecki. Copernicus Ventures will also be an umbrella brand covering all areas of cooperation between Blaisdell (US) and Lisiecki (EU), who for more than a year have collaborated together on multiple projects on both sides of the Atlantic.

"This project has a long-term vision and nature. It was established after more than a year of cooperation, in which Eva and I greatly complemented each other as independent entrepreneurs. The commitment and entrepreneurial spirit is what unites us and allows us to say we are both serial entrepreneurs. Our goal is to make best use of our skills, relationships, experience and presence on two continents" - said Lisiecki.

“Copernicus Ventures focuses the energy and entrepreneurship that we have as Europeans and Americans who have the independence, vision, creativity and know how to create such an impactful venture. Our operations are, of course, co-created with multiple partners from different countries and we know that this mix with our abilities to effectively zoom in on the most relevant network of investors and premiere American partners gives us an extraordinary power to act” – adds Blaisdell.

Why Copernicus?

The name of Copernicus Ventures Int. means courageous and visionary, just like the great Polish astronomer - we take contrarian action and claim the new order of things to come. More about Nicolaus Copernicus -
