The FamCap Family Offices

The European family offices most committed to local venture investing

European family offices lag their US counterparts when it comes to backing local venture groups. Either they are too risk-averse to invest directly – they do funds instead – or they invest mostly in the US, where the opportunities are much greater. But some are more than pulling their weight and committing sizable sums to European startups and tech companies. 

Prominent among them are Jeremy Coller’s London-based CPT Capital, committed to a host of alternative food companies in the UK and the rest of Europe; the Italian Rancilio family with Rancilio Cube, which likes European venture; the Swedish Wattin family’s Inbox Capital, hugely committed to local tech companies; Andre Hoffmann’s Swiss-based 4FO Ventures, committed to Swiss venture investing; and the Staffelberg family’s Saffelberg Investments, hugely committed to Belgian startups and tech. 

Family Capital has composed a list of the 30 most prominent European family offices committed to venture investing, what stages they like, and what geographies they prefer. 

Like the ones mentioned above, some are more committed to their local markets, others invest throughout Europe, and others take a more global perspective, with the US and India the two biggest markets for their venture investing outside of Europe.
