Nauta Capital is renowned as one of the largest pan-European Venture Capital firms and has its offices in London, Barcelona, and Berlin. The firm prioritizes capital-efficient B2B software companies.
The firm has now announced the final close of its oversubscribed fifth fund at €190 million (nearly £161.5 million).
The first round was held in 2020 right in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic and it closed at €120 million (nearly £102 million). Now, the final close of this most recent round brings the total value of assets to over €550 million (nearly £467.5 million).
If this trend persists, Nauta Capital may be on course to become one of the largest venture capital firms in Europe to prioritize B2B startups.
Nauta has enjoyed the backing of a vast base of Limited Partners across Europe, Asia, and the Americas in its new fund. Some of these include Netherlands-based European Family Office Merifin Capital and the private markets division of Spain-headquartered giant BBVA Asset Management.
The investors who took part in the raise include British Patient Capital, ICO, the European Investment Fund, ICF, and Germany-based KfW Capital.
“It has been a fast-moving year for us as a team – we were neck-deep closing our fund from existing and new Limited Partners, while at the same time meeting and investing in more companies than ever before. And this was all done virtually,” Carles Ferrer, Nauta’s London-based General Partner said.
