Ventech is an early stage VC fund created in 1998 in Paris. Since then, we have developed internationally, with the openings of offices in Munich in 2013 and Helsinki in 2018 and the launch of a sister company in China in 2008. Reason for that is that we believe in “Global reach, local touch”, meaning that we provide localized support to our start-ups, in particular when they decide to expand their business abroad. We are a team of 11 investment professionals in Europe, with General Partners having two fund lifecycles behind them and meaningful exits (>60). We currently invest out of our fifth fund (€140m), with initial ticket sizes between €1-4m per company. We are “entrepreneurs first” meaning we back entrepreneurs in all sectors of the digital economy, from marketplaces to semiconductors.
