Underline Ventures, based in Bucharest, secures $20 million for its inaugural fund. The venture capitalist seeks to support Eastern European entrepreneurs who are establishing high-growth businesses with aspirations to go worldwide.
In order to aid in the development of the businesses in its portfolio, Underline Ventures will also keep utilising its network and expanding its platform offerings.
International fund-of-funds, corporate leaders, IT entrepreneurs, and operators have contributed to the fund raising. With the goal to provide its portfolio companies with a more powerful platform, the corporation intends to further up its efforts in this area.
The General Partner of Underline Ventures, Bogdan Iordache said, “We are lucky to partner with investors who have a deep conviction that Eastern European founders can build significant technology businesses despite the macro environment. We know founders fundraising in this climate have to show a lot of resilience – while this may be a difficult start, in the long run, it can be a great way to start,”.
The company is actively investing and has completed seven investments spanning from big data & AI and cybersecurity to ecomm infrastructure in Romania, Croatia, Serbia, and the wider Eastern European diaspora.
In addition, portfolio firms receive periodic guidance from founders and operators of companies such as Bitdefender, Telerik, and UiPath, among others, whenever needed.
