Paris, Berlin, San Francisco, Dakar, December 5, 2022. Partech, the global technology investment
firm, has announced the closing of Partech Entrepreneur IV, its fourth Seed fund, at its €120M hard
cap. The oversubscribed fund has seen support from leading financial institutions, multinational
corporations, family offices and 100 entrepreneurs – of which 35 were themselves funded by Partech
in the past.
Partech Entrepreneur IV will back around 50 founding teams in Europe and across the globe, at pre-seed and seed stage. Thanks to a flexible and collaborative model, it can invest as a lead investor or
co-investor, with initial checks from €300K to €3M, and typically reinvest until Series B.
The Seed strategy at Partech is managed by a dedicated team of former entrepreneurs from Europe
and the US. The team is not limiting itself to specific industries, markets or models: “We are convinced
that spotting the future leaders of new emerging categories often requires a broad scope, and a
genuine open-mindedness towards what the most talented Founders come up with” explains Romain
Lavault, General Partner at Partech. With its past Seed funds, Partech backed a range of iconic
platform, Jellysmack, the technology platform for creators, Xendit, the digital payment infrastructure
for South-East Asia, or Merama, the leading e-commerce aggregator in Latin America.
The Partech Seed team combines the expertise, support and commitment of an independent Seed
fund, with the benefits of the larger Partech platform, allowing them to offer Founders and their teams
unmatched resources, reach and perspective. At the core of the Partech Seed team’s DNA is the deep,
hands-on expertise they offer to founders as they grapple with the existential challenges they face
when bringing their idea to life and preparing for the journey ahead. “Backing and working with
exceptional founders from the very beginning of their journey is the shared passion – and only focus –
of our team.” says Boris Golden, General Partner at Partech. “It is, in our experience, a unique craft,
requiring stage-specific expertise, commitment and mindset.”
The anonymous satisfaction survey that is run yearly is quantitative evidence of the rave reviews
received from Partech’s community of Founders, with an NPS of 93. Another remarkable testimony is
that 80% of the Founders of the Seed portfolio companies with a sizable exit (full or partial) have
invested their personal money into the new fund.
Born in San Francisco and Paris, Partech is one of the most active tech investors in the world,
bringing together capital, operational experience, and strategic support for entrepreneurs at seed,
venture and growth stages. The current portfolio includes 210 companies in 40 countries.
