While 3 billion people are confined at home, digitalisation is bound to dramatically accelerate across sectors and “remote” is emerging as a new standard. This redefines how people live, work and consume, while businesses have to massively switch online and reinvent themselves. Startups closing seed rounds at the moment are ideally positioned to seize the opportunities lying ahead in the new “normal” world, while incumbents are dealing with old infrastructure and massive cost-cutting plans.
Amidst all this, global VC firm, Partech has just announced the final closing of its latest Seed Fund — dubbed as — Partech Entrepreneur III, at $100M (€92.3 million). The firm plans to invest it in post-COVID trends in health, work, commerce, finance, mobility, and computing.
