While 2021 was an all record-breaking year, we're already seeing this continue for 2022. The year kicked off with some fabulous fundraising news from our tech-companies Bolt
(raised €600M+, is now worth €4B+) and Veriff
(raised $100M, became a unicorn on $1.5B valuation) with a number of our funds also participating as existing investors.
January was a busy month for us and our funds also in many other ways. Together with all key startup ecosystem players, we had a meeting with Prime Minister
Kaja Kallas to tackle the most important aspects and challenges for the ecosystem and digital society to flourish.
We're also very honored to start our first-ever PE/VC syllabus at two Estonian universities
this spring - TalTech and Estonian Business School. The 8-week course, created in cooperation the universities and EstVCA, provides a detailed overview of the role of PE/VC funds in the development and growth of companies at different development stages.
