New fund from Christophe Maire
The venture capitalist believed in the success of Gorillas early on. Now another fund with 100 million euros is to follow. Start-ups from Germany are also receiving investments.
Venture capitalist Atlantic Food Labs had the right instinct and invested early in the quick delivery service Gorillas, which now has a valuation of around three billion US dollars. Now Christophe Maire, who is behind the fund, wants to launch another fund and put around 100 million euros into young companies. The money, which will come from institutional investors, will then be invested in foodtech, as reported by Handelsblatt .
Money will come from Bitburger, Gemüsering and Döhler Teilhaber und Partner, among others. However, the collected capital is not supposed to flow into a big bet, but into 40 or even 50 companies all over Europe that are committed to sustainable nutrition. The money could therefore also come to Germany if the right founders are found here. For the time being, the fund is not limited to one sub-sector, but takes in everything from agrotech to urban farming.
The German start-up Microharvest, which wants to produce proteins from bacteria, is benefiting from one of the first rounds of capital, as is Klim. The start-up, which is also German, wants to promote the storage of CO2 in farmers' soils.
