Speedinvest News
It’s no secret that we believe entrepreneurs build stronger companies when they have access to sector-focused expertise. That’s why our (now) six investment teams staffed with industry pros work side-by-side with our founders to help them dominate their markets.
The teams and their portfolios continue to fire on all cylinders 🚀
  • Deep Tech invests in the latest venture from Lasse Andresen (former Sun Microsystems CTO) that’s building a Web 3.0 identity platform
  • Fintech and our portfolio company, Finary, make their national TV debut in France
  • The Health team is growing and publishes an exclusive landscape of what founders are doing in the BeNeLux market
  • Industrial Tech releases their annual deep-dive report into the sector (and the future is digital and green!) in collaboration with Dealroom
  • Our new team of self-proclaimed SaaS & Infra nerds unveils their investment thesis
And our Marketplaces & Consumer team wraps up co-hosting the biggest marketplace-specific conference in the world with our friends at Battery Ventures.
Enough teasing. Start reading. There’s a lot to catch up on!

That’s a wrap on The 2021 Marketplace Conference!
With over 600 online attendees, a fantastic lineup of over 30 marketplace speakers and panelists like Andrew Chen of a16z, masterclasses and (of course) networking, it was one heck of a ride!
In case you missed it, our Paola Vivoli chatted with 3 of the keynote speakers in advance. You can read their conversations below.
