Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do, so throw off the bowlines, sail away from safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore, Dream, Discover.

About 3Beans

The name 3 Beans is founded by sipping a drink and enjoying live. 

Sambuca is traditionally served with three coffee beans. Although some bartenders garnish the drink with a "few" beans, they are simply unaware of the representation of the beans. The 3 beans not only enhance the flavor of the liqueur, one coffee bean is intended to represent health, one is intended to represent happiness and the last one is meant to represent prosperity.

3 Beans Ventures doesn’t simply ‘add flavor’ to its ventures, subsidiaries and investments, it strives to create an environment of happiness, health, prosperity.

3 Beans means working hard, but also profoundly enjoying work and life.


3 Beans Ventures is founded 10 years ago by Ivo Elshof, an entrepreneur in heart and soul who loves working with passionate people on new projects, challanges and companies. With the constant drive for success, 3 Beans is nowadays involved in several companies spread across different countries in the world.

3Beans ventures provides seed and venture funding to the best companies. It’s also always looking for entrepreneurial investments or acquisitions or partnerships in the IT market. Do you have a challenge for us? Don’t hesitate to contact us
