Atomico invests in innovative technology companies that are on their way to becoming category leaders.

We founded Atomico with three core beliefs:

  1. Great companies come from anywhere
  2. Technology is transforming every sector of our economy
  3. Successful battle-scarred entrepreneurs and operators are best placed to help the most disruptive founders succeed

Over the last ten years that vision has become a reality, and these beliefs continue to underpin what we do.

Today, our mission is to find and partner with the most ambitious entrepreneurs - primarily from Europe - who are using deep technology to have a real impact on the world. As soon as they have achieved product market fit and begin to focus on scaling to become global category winners we want to support them. As one of Europe's largest venture funds we invest from Series A all the way through to later stage rounds.

This is important because technology innovation at scale is a key driver for economic growth in Europe and elsewhere. Furthermore, some of the toughest global challenges humanity and our planet face will be solved by ambitious, mission-driven entrepreneurs building scalable businesses to address those problems. That’s why we look for the founders who are focussed on technology and product innovation that transform the way we live and work.
