About

VNTRE Fund B.V. is a seed stage investment firm, primarily targeting investments in promising U.S. startups. We primarily invest in startups that:

  1. Have gone through a top-tier accelerator/incubator program;
  2. Have secured a seed funding round including one or more top-tier investors.

Our focus is on providing European investors access to U.S. startups that they would have no access to themselves. This offers them exposure to the most attractive venture capital opportunities. At times we will consider startup investments from other geographies too, while ensuring the bulk of the portfolio is invested in the U.S..

Seed Fund I, launched in 2012, is fully invested (2014), containing 19 investments, two of which are in Ycombinator related funds, each investing in a further 5-20 startups. The portfolio therefore has exposure to roughly 30-40 startups. Current notable successes within the Fund I portfolio include Shyp, Coinbase, Slack, Teespring and Instacart.

Seed Fund II, launched in 2014, is fully invested (2015), containing 21 investments, one of which in a Ycombinator related fund, another in a Foundry Group Angels fund, each investing in a further 5-20 startups. The portfolio therefore has exposure to roughly 30-40 startups similar to its predecessor.
