Elaia was founded in 2002 as an independent venture capital fund specialising in the Digital Economy.
Elaia now manages over €250m, invests in high-growth startups offering ground-breaking technologies, products and services, from the initial financing rounds through to their emergence as global leaders and supports its best performers to reach a massive scale. Elaia aims to lead the initial financing round and to play a hands-on role in supporting entrepreneurs, notably by joining the Board of Directors.
Elaia is currently deploying Elaia Delta Fund, a early-stage investment vehicle which is still in the fundraising process after gathering €120M in early 2017.
Through this vehicle, Elaia invests initial tickets of between €500k and €2.5m but may deploy up to several million euros to a single investment during follow-on financing rounds.
We play a highly proactive role alongside entrepreneurs, supporting them for the duration of their entrepreneurial projects. Elaia brings together over sixty years’ experience of venture capital and the digital economy, and can draw on an extensive network of contacts. Our ambition is to leverage our expertise and networks to support innovative startups and contribute to the success of tomorrow’s leaders.
Elaia is launching a new line of funds dedicated to technology transfer initiatives.
