“We have been investing in the UK for many years and continue to be committed as we believe London and the UK continues to be the largest tech hub in Europe.”

To date, Nauta Capital has invested in several UK firms including Brandwatch, CloudIQ and BeMyEye.

The VC firm has already used the fund to invest in eight companies and has deployed approximately 10% of its capital.

Ferrer added: “Our passion is backing great entrepreneurs that share our desire to produce world-leading capital efficient software companies and become global disruptors.

“We have built a very solid and granular presence in each of our 3 locations. Having a fully dedicated investment team at each location allows us to access privileged dealflow, and have quite a unique pan-european approach,” he concluded.

Nauta Capital, whose area of focus include B2B software firms and mobile companies, also has offices in Barcelona and Boston.
