InReach Ventures, the ‘AI-powered’ European VC, closes new €53M fund

InReach Ventures, the so-called “AI-powered” venture capital firm based in London, is announcing the first closing of a new €53 million fund targeting early-stage European technology companies — surpassing the original fund target of €50 million, apparently.

Here's How AI Is Changing VC Funding
Venture capital firms are using machine learning to make their investment decisions. Here's how to use AI for better business insights and better access to funds.

Any current discussion of artificial intelligence in the workforce centers on how it will impact -- or outright replace -- certain departments or even employees.

The VC Game Is Changing: 5 Ways To Compete

VC polarizes people. Depending on who you ask, it can be described both as toxic capital and as a golden ticket to crushing competition and becoming the next unicorn. The reality is, while definitely not suitable for everyone, VC is the top option available to high-risk startups chasing hypergrowth – one that has enabled the rise of the tech industry as we know it today.

Artificial intelligence is guiding venture capital to start-ups
Firms are using algorithms to uncover potential investments

One of the biggest challenges for venture capital companies is finding interesting investment targets before anyone else. It is often a laborious, travel-intensive job. But machine learning and predictive analytics are starting to transform how an investor puts a portfolio together.

This tech VC firm has software that it thinks can create hundreds of thousands of jobs

In the US, if venture capital investors or tech company founders need to find each other, they go to one of two places: Silicon Valley or New York. Companies that need tech workers, and the media that follow them, eventually relocate or open offices in one of those two areas.


The Platform Engineering Approach to VC

For a Full Stack VC like InReach Ventures, having data and technology at the centre of your strategy and organisation means you have to re-think how you ‘do’ VC from the ground up.
