Our recent investments

Veo

$6m Series A

Copenhagen-based Veo is “democratising” the filming of soccer matches and training by negating the need for multiple camera operators and/or a vision mixer.

This Series A round of $6m was raised in September 2019 with US-based CourtsideVC and Danish firm VC Seed Capital.

Veo employs a 4K lens camera that records the entire pitch coupled with its AI video technology to processes the resulting video. This sees Veo follow the action via virtual panning and zooming to create a TV-like viewing experience.

Capcito

€7m Series A

Sweden-based Capcito provides a real-time, fully transparent automated financing digital platform to SMEs.

This Series A round of €7m was raised in August 2019 with Schibsted Growth to join existing investors SEB Venture Capital and Collector Ventures.

The Capcito platform utilises real-time economics to provide financing to SMEs (factoring, invoice discounting and business loans) to provide costworthy, flexible and digital capital.

Chattermill

£3.5m Series A

UK-based Chattermill provides an AI powered insight platform to help companies understand and improve customer experience. This Series A round of £3.5m was raised in January 2019 with DN Capital (lead investor).

The Chattermill platform allows companies to collate feedback in a smarter way, integrating with popular tools like Salesforce, Zendesk and SurveyMonkey, as well as social media and support tickets, before providing actionable insights that take much of the heavy lifting off of humans tasked with responding to feedback. Key customers include the likes of Transferwise, HelloFresh and Just Eat.

ReachFive

€10m Series A

ReachFive, the SaaS Customer Identity and Access Management platform (“CIAM”), closed a $10 million Series A funding round in April 2019 led by CapHorn Invest with Ventech and Dawn Capital. This new round orchestrated by the investment bank Avolta Partners will fuel product innovation, customer growth and global expansion.

This capital injection confirms the momentum of ReachFive, and follows a stellar year of growth, in which the company saw its recurring revenue more than triple. ReachFive simplifies the consumer authentication process, providing a secure and unified 360-degree view of the customers to the brands, while also significantly improving the end user experience. The start-up has established strong relationships with leading players across a variety of sectors, including the likes of BUT, Boulanger, Etam Group, L’Occitane, Hachette Group, The Compagnie des Alpes, ENGIE, Micromania-Zing, and La Redoute, many of which have committed to multi-year partnerships.

4Stop

€2.5m Series A

4Stop, a leading global KYB, KYC, compliance and fraud prevention provider succesfully raised a German-based $2.5 Million Series A Round Investment from Ventech in May 2019.

Ventech’s investment will support 4Stop in their next stage of growth and is indicative of the Fund’s interest in the firm’s digitalization of this operational risk process. Their aggregation of data and knowledge increases the value-add of their service with each additional client and data sourcing. The addressed risk process is a part of a company’s business that, for many, is integral to a firm’s ability to exist yet is outside of the core business and outside the area of expertise — thus the opportunity to partner with a true expert like 4Stop enables companies to focus on core business and continue to operate with smoothly managed regulatory risk. For an investor, the 4Stop business model is also interesting: a strong recurring nature of revenues and margins growing with their clients success.

Antidot

€5.5m Series A

Antidot, the software vendor behind Fluid Topics Dynamic Content Delivery platform, has closed a €5.5m financing round from Ventech and its historical partner CM-CIC Innovation (a member of Crédit Mutuel Alliance Fédérale Group).

This funding enables Antidot to accelerate the development of its strong technology roadmap around content delivery. Building on recent successes with major customers that include Talend (US), Teradata (US), Kone (Finland), Médiamétrie (France) and EasyMile (France), this €5.5m capital infusion also signifies an increase in Antidot’s global coverage as the firm endeavors to both strengthen its US operations and deepen its focus on Northern and Central Europe.

Codasip

$10m Series A

Codasip, the leading provider of RISC-V processor IP, has closed a $10 million Series A funding round led by Ventech alongside with Shenzhen Capital Group, Paua Ventures, and Western Digital.
