Atomico is partnering with European leading tech entrepreneurs

Atomico

European venture capital fund Atomico is partnering with some of the continent’s leading tech entrepreneurs, as it bets on the continued growth of the sector despite signs of waning investor enthusiasm for Silicon Valley start-ups. Niklas Zennström, co-founder of messaging service Skype, created the London-based firm that manages funds worth about $850 million in 2006. Atomico invests in technology companies primarily outside California’s Bay Area. Yesterday, he announced that the fund would team up with a group of “entrepreneur partners” as co-investors, including: Ilkka Paananen and Mikko Kodisoja, co-founders of Supercell, the Finnish games maker behind Clash of Clans; Alex Asseily co-founder of Jawbone, the gadget maker; and Brent Hoberman, co-founder of Lastminute.com and Made.com, the British internet commerce sites.
