Skype founders Niklas Zennstrom and Janus Friis have a big appetite for success. When they sold Skype to eBay they cashed several hundred millions, but they invested quite a substantial part in their investment vehicle Atomico.
Currently they are planning to open a new fund, but now entitely focused on European startups. The fund will have a size of 300 million euros. Atomico’s first fund consists of a lot of well-known names like LastFM, Powerreviews, Technorati, Joost and Wunderloop. Of these, LastFM was recently sold to CBS for around 280 million dollars. It seems that everything Niklas and Janus touch turns into gold. They also were involved in the file sharing program Kazaa. So, if you are a startup and need funding to make the next step I would go for Atomico. Hopefully they will like your business too
