The money will be invested in around 40 SaaS or digital marketplace startups across Europe and North America, with €100,000 to €1 million to be allocated for each of successful candidate and significant reserves to be kept in vaults for follow-on fundings.

Previous companies backed by Point Nine Capital and its partners, Christoph Janz and Pawel Chudzinski, include Zendesk, Westwing, Delivery Hero, Vend, Clio, Kreditech and Fyber.

Christoph Janz, Managing Partner at Point Nine Capital, said: “When we started Point Nine, our goal was to combine our founder-friendly no-nonsense ‘angel investor’ approach with the ability to provide much stronger financial support. We’re very happy with the results so far and are excited to continue our work with Fund III.”
