Announcing the launch of United Ventures III

July 24th, 2023

We are excited to announce the first close of United Ventures III, our latest €150 million early-stage fund. Our focus remains on backing big solutions to big problems, as we believe tech entrepreneurship can change the world. With this new fund, we plan to invest in 15 to 18 early-stage European technology companies that develop innovative technology solutions to revolutionize undigitized sectors, improve people’s quality of life, and promote sustainable development.

“United Ventures’ new fund will focus on investing in visionary entrepreneurs who tackle critical issues, and that are often underestimated in their early stages. We believe that these companies have the power to make meaningful societal advancements by harnessing innovations that fall outside the tech sector’s typical hype cycles.”

Massimiliano Magrini

Since our inception in 2013, we have witnessed the European tech ecosystem undergo tremendous growth and change. Through it all, our conviction that tech entrepreneurship can positively reshape the world has only strengthened. Our investment strategy prioritizes teams and technologies with the potential to drive positive change over the next decade, particularly in sectors that remain largely untouched by digitization. We remain open to opportunities across different sectors and industries that align with our core values and mission.

We are thrilled to welcome Giulia Giovannini and Sara Lovato as Investment Partners, Jacopo Drudi as Operating Partner, and Prof. Mariarosaria Taddeo as an independent Board member to our already strong United Ventures team. Prof. Taddeo is an expert in the field of artificial intelligence and works on the ethics of digital technologies and defense technologies at the Oxford Internet Institute of the University of Oxford and at the Alan Turing Institute.

“Raising a fund in the midst of a challenging macroeconomic environment is a testament to United Ventures’ strong reputation in the industry and our ability to identify the most promising investment opportunities. It also represents a vote of confidence in the potential of our ecosystem to drive innovation and create value”.

Paolo Gesess

Investing is a long-term commitment. We strongly appreciate the trust of all our investors while we continue to seek out the most promising early-stage technology companies in Europe and invest in their success. We will work tirelessly to ensure that we deliver on our promises and generate significant returns for our investors. We are excited to embark on this new chapter together.

Thank you to all our founders. We would not be where we are today without the visionary entrepreneurs who have trusted us with their companies and worked with us to achieve their goals. We are excited about the next chapter of European tech and look forward to working with founders who share our vision of using technology to solve the world’s most pressing problems.

And last but not least, a huge shout-out to our entire United Ventures team for their hard work and dedication. We are proud of the culture we have built at United Ventures. Our success is a team effort, and we are grateful for our dedicated and talented team of professionals who bring diverse skills and backgrounds to the table.
