 EIF supported Indico Capital Partners VC I has recently completed its first closing of €41 million from the €46 million of commitments from investors from 8 different countries. The fund aims to identify, invest and nurture the most promising Iberian early stage startups, in particularly those based out of Portugal.

It is the first sizable independent and private early stage tech focused fund to be based in Lisbon, one of the up-and-coming tech hubs in Europe. With a geographic focus, the fund will target investments from B2B SaaS, Artificial Intelligence, Fintech and Cybersecurity to Marketplaces and B2C Platforms.

The Managing General Partner, Stephan Morais (former head of the leading corporate VC Caixa Capital), General Partner Ricardo Torgal (also former Caixa Capital senior investor) and Venture Partner Cristina Fonseca (co-founder and shareholder of Talkdesk) bring together a wealth of investment and entrepreneurial expertise unique in the local market. Past investments of the team include Farfetch, Unbabel, Codacy and most other success stories originating from Portugal over the past 6 years, in addition to Talkdesk itself. The Indico Partners have an extensive global network of major Series A and above investment funds that are key for subsequent financing rounds as well as a group of global experts and advisors that aim to help the portfolio companies reach their goals.

In this first closing of 41 million of the commited €46 million, the EIF (European Investment Fund), the cornerstone investor of Indico, was joined by over 20 other institutional and individual investors such as the IFD (Instituição Financeira de Desenvolvimento) through the Portugal Tech facility, Draper Esprit (a major global quoted VC fund based in the UK), pension funds, education and research institutions, wealth managers, high net worth individuals and many local and international tech entrepreneurs.

The fund will invest typically between €150 thousand and 5 million per portfolio company over their lifetime - pre-seed to series A, plus follow-on rounds. Target portfolio companies will aim to become global category leaders. The first Indico investments have already been concluded and will be announced soon.
