UVC closes flagship Fund III (hard cap) and Opportunities Fund at €255m.

UVC Partners has closed their two newest funds: the flagship Fund III and the Opportunities Fund. The third fund by UVC closed at a hard cap of Euro 255 million, which is a tenfold higher investment volume than their first fund. This successful closing builds on the strides taken by UVC’s previous funds.

The Opportunities Fund will push other UVC flagships further and make better investing possible.

One of the things that are special about UVC is its diverse investor base, comprised of Europe’s most successful founders and family offices. These include Bastian Nominacher from Decacorn Celonis, the founders of FLIXMOBILITY GMBH Jochen Engert, Daniel Krauss and André Schwämmlein and the families Strüngmann, Klatten and Schörghuber. Many of the investors have placed trust in UVC’s funds for a long time and praise UVC’s ability to invest in tomorrow’s game changers and create a more sustainable and efficient world.

The ecosystem of the venture capital firm is exceptional, as they work closely with UnternehmerTUM, Europe’s leading innovation and business creation center, which gives UVC access to vast resources of experts and talent as well as a broad network. It includes 5,000 talented participants from TU Munich, 100 corporate partners, and 300 employees, many of whom are top experts in artificial intelligence.

UVC Partners offers this access to expertise and talent to European B2B startups in the areas of enterprise software, industrial technologies, and mobility. The project was managed by a UVC team consisting Helmut Schoenenberger, Dr. Ingo Potthof, Johannes von Borries, Benjamin Erhart, Andreas Unseld, Dr. Alexander Huber, Alexander Kiltz, Lisa Liu, Oliver Schoppe, Amanda Birkenholz, Caleb Boyd, Jana Petry and Veronika Hiebl and supported and advised by the team around Philipp Neidel, Dr. Simon Schachinger, Dr. Philip Mostertz and Dr. Christian Hillebrand from Orbit Fund Boutique.
