We are entrepreneurs with a global perspective who invest in passionate entrepreneurs with disruptive, powerful ideas.
Through our experience building Skype, Joost and Kazaa, we understand the value of game-changing business models and have created a worldwide network to help accelerate the growth of the companies in which we invest.
Founded by Niklas Zennström and Janus Friis, Atomico is a tightly-knit
team of 15 people whose relationships span Europe, the US, South
America and Asia. Many Atomico team members have worked together
before, allowing us to leverage the strength of our relationships
around the world to help grow portfolio companies.
We primarily invest in entrepreneurs working in consumer
facing technology businesses in Europe. However we are open-minded and
more excited by great teams executing big ideas than in specific
regions, sectors and markets.
We invest in early stage ideas but can be opportunistic when
we find a compelling opportunity. We like to lead our investments, but
often partner with other investors to create a diversified team to
support the entrepreneurs.
We help our portfolio companies by being involved when they
need us, and giving them space when they don't. And being entrepreneurs
ourselves, we have a lot of fun when we work closely with the
management teams of companies we invest in.
