UNIQA Ventures and Elevator Ventures Beteiligungs GmbH (“Elevator Ventures”), a 100 per cent subsidiary of Raiffeisen Bank International, have joined kompany’s cap table alongside the European Super Angel Clubs syndication fund “EXF Alpha”.
The deal was executed with the broad support and commitment of Venionaire Group:
“Members of the European Super Angels Club initially co-invested end of last year into a convertible bond through the syndication fund EXF Alpha, managed by Venionaire Ventures. This initial investment is now followed by a strategic share purchase alongside Elevator Ventures and UNIQA Ventures. The deal brings in value and support for the further growth of kompany”, explains Berthold Baurek-Karlic, Managing Partner (CEO) of Venionaire Capital.
