Closes seed fund!
Today, Angular Ventures has announced the closing of its debut fund at $41 million (approx. €37.2 million) for early-stage deep technology enterprise companies. It’s global expansion plans are based in Europe and Israel.
Angular initially set out to raise $25 million (nearly €22.6 million) debut fund, but it reached $41 million. More than 50% of the fund’s capital has been pumped from the US. On the other hand, 74% of the fund’s capital base is institutional, including two US-based endowments, sophisticated family offices, and leading fund-of-funds across the world.
Builds a sector-focused firm
Gil Dibner, the general partner and founder of Angular Ventures wants to re-imagine early-seed venture capital by building a sector-focused firm. He wants to remove geographical restrictions when it comes to investing and establish a US presence to support startups as they expand globally. The VC is able to do so as its capital comes exclusively from commercial investors.
