Via Venture Partners: A good start

Via Venture Partners has now been up and running for almost 6 months since the fund was founded in beginning of January. It has been a period with intense activity:

  • The team has been formed (three investment professionals and a CFO),
  • We have engaged a number of highly experienced advisors and most importantly,
  • We have completed two promising investments.

    We foresee that the rest of 2006 will have similar high activity level and hope to complete a number of additional investments and strengthen the team further. Please read more on or below.
