Total capital and size of investment:
Although it does not yet have any companies in its portfolio, and is in the process of searching and analysing them, the money raised (€40 million) and the stature of its founding team and advisory board make Seaya a fund on a par with Caixa Capital Risc and Nautal Capital, the two most powerful firms in Spain. It will do so from Madridunlike the two previous funds that operate from Barcelona. The new fund is targeting transactions of between €5 million and €10 million.
It seems a high rank for the venture capital is Spanish when the average number of operations is below €500,000. Possibly the fund will have to focus on operations of companies with a higher degree of consolidation.
