In the latest development, Rabo Frontier Ventures (“RFV”) has committed to Speedinvest’s new fund (Si3). With its latest funds, Speedinvest aims to build a portfolio of 80 to 100 investments in European technology startups.
The fund, targeting a size of €175 million, will focus on sectors including deep tech & enterprise software, fintech, industrial tech, marketplaces & network effects. Notably, Speedinvest has its headquarter in Vienna and operates from multiple offices in major cities across Europe.
Jeroen van Doornik, the partner at RFV, said:
SI’s is well embedded in the European early-stage venture community and is a reputable and rapidly growing seed-stage VC investor with a pan-European presence. SI’s platform approach has enabled them to capture and build value across Europe effectively since the launch of their first fund. We have been working closely with the team and think highly of their value creation approach through extensive company-building and operational support, which unlocks great opportunities for seed and early-stage ventures. It is amongst others the capability to do this at the scale that makes Speedinvest unique and a great partner.
Speedinvest is unique through the combination of a high volume investment strategy (80 to 100 portfolio companies per fund) combined with an operational platform that provides hands-on assistance, experience, network, and operational support to help founders and add value.
Furthermore, RFV will work closely together with Speedinvest to search for interesting technology companies that are disrupting or influencing the current business of Rabobank.
Oliver Holle, founding partner of Speedinvest adds:
Our ambition has always been to provide highly relevant value for founders in their daily work. Our partnership with RFV goes clearly beyond the traditional LP – GP relationship, as it provides our founders with direct access to one of the most innovative financial services players in Europe while giving RFV insights into some of the best startups in the booming European ecosystem.
