Kibo Ventures was born in 2012 in Madrid (Spain) with the mission of empowering diverse European tech entrepreneurs to solve big problems and helping them scale.

Our team is a combination of operational and investment experts with deep international networks in Europe and US including some of the best founders, investors and corporates. Since 2012, we have built one of the largest VC teams in Southern Europe.

Our team and investors are committed to impact, diversity and believe in driving global positive impact while achieving top returns. We include social and environmental criteria in our investments.

Recently Kibo Ventures launched Nzyme, a new €200m technology private equity fund focused on the big untapped opportunity of transforming highly fragmented and under-innovated industries where technology can play a key role.
