Just seven months after launching fundraise, Alven Capital announces the close of Alven Capital V, a venture capital fund that will continue the firm’s successful 17-year history of early stage investments in tech companies. Due to strong investor demand, Alven Capital V held a first and final close at its pre-set maximum size of €250 million beating its €200 million target and more than doubling its previous fund size.

Alven Capital will thus benefit from increased dry powder to back and support in the long run the most talented and ambitious French entrepreneurs worldwide. Focusing on seed/series A rounds, Alven Capital will be able to deploy substantial additional resources (up to 35 M€) with the same investment vehicle to support its portfolio companies on later stage rounds of financing while they expand their business globally and open new markets.

Alven Capital V’s sectors of interest will include notably AI, data management platforms, Saas companies, security solutions, as well as disruptive consumer models with a particular focus on marketplaces and web brands.

With this new fund, the Alven Family, a powerful network of 100+ current or past portfolio companies’ founders and managers will keep on growing, providing valuable insights and support to all its members. With half of its portfolio companies being already present or headquartered in the US, this network will continue to spread on both sides of the Atlantic.
