WARSAW, June 17 2024 – Radix Ventures is pleased to announce the first closing of its fund at €41 million, with significant backing from the European Investment Fund (EIF) and PFR Ventures and a group of private investors from the CEE region. This milestone marks a significant step towards our goal of raising a total of €60 million to invest in late-seed, deep tech startups based in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE).

With over 20 years of combined experience in venture investments and a strong track record in commercializing deep tech innovations, its team is dedicated to empowering radical innovations that drive sustainability and technological advancement.

“Our vision is to become the VC fund of choice for CEE-based deep tech entrepreneurs. This first closing, supported by EIF and PFR Ventures, underscores the confidence in our strategy and our ability to identify and nurture groundbreaking technologies,” said Paweł Bochniarz, Managing Partner at Radix Ventures. “We are committed to sourcing, selecting, and supporting the most promising deep tech startups to help them scale and succeed on a global stage.”

Serhii Sokolenko, a Venture Partner at Radix Ventures, added: “Ukrainian entrepreneurs located across Europe and in Ukraine and working in deeptech and dual use technologies can also benefit from Radix Ventures’ strong connections to manufacturing and research bases in Poland and the rest of CEE.”   

Radix Ventures’ investment strategy focuses on high-quality, proprietary deal flow and building a strong pipeline of projects that will mature over the fund’s lifetime.
