Smart money for Smart Startups

We invest in tech companies for the new economy globally. From Acumatica to Nginx to Zopa, we've invested in over 60 companies in 12 different countries. 
We’re entrepreneurs who love backing scrappy entrepreneurs.

We invest early and our typical investment size is between $1M and $10M. We currently have $270M under management and are actively investing out of our third fund.

We invest in founders who are building global businesses and leverage our extensive networks in North America and Europe to help them succeed. 

Our founding partners co-founded two enterprise software companies that have both scaled globally to over $100M in revenue.

How We Help

“Runa has partnered with Nginx from our very first investment round and has supported us since then in every subsequent round. Runa’s team assisted us greatly with corporate structure and insights into specific issues for non-American founders. They were involved day to day, in matters ranging from general operational issues to detailed constructive criticism of our fund raising pitch deck.”
