Atomico, an international venture capital founded in 2006 by co-founder of Skype Niklas Zennström, announced $476 million of Series C Financing, three times the size of previous fund and oversubscribed. Investors of this round, alongside the general partners, come from across Asia, the US and Europe, including the EIF.

Atomico helps entrepreneurs, primarily those outside Silicon Valley, to meet their challenges. It focuses exclusively on the technology sector, with investments ranging from small seed investments to larger growth investments. The company reportedly has made over 50 investments over four continents. Atomico operates with a single, international structure composed of two core teams; the value creation team, and the investment team.

The capital received this time will be used to build a concentrated portfolio of technology based growth companies that are looking to scale their businesses, again primarily outside Silicon Valley. The features for tech companies that Atomico valued are brilliant team, hit product underpinned by excellent technology, great market potentials, capability to attack and transform large industries, both domestically and globally.
