A bit of news on movement within the European tech investment community:
1) Invest Europe has appointed Eric de Montgolfier as its new CEO to lead the association that represents Europe’s private equity, venture capital and infrastructure sectors.
De Montgolfier joins from Brussels-listed investment manager Gimv, where he was Partner and Head of Gimv France, responsible for overseeing investment and group strategy in the market.
2) Aside from being a Tech.eu co-founder, he’s also a pro investor with 15 years of seed investment experience; and now Jon Bradford has joined Dynamo Ventures as its newest partner.
Jon joins the firm from Motive Partners, on a full-time basis with a base in London, having previously been an advisor who helped Dynamo launch its debut fund. Dynamo Ventures is a US-EU based seed fund focused on B2B startups in supply chain and mobility.
3) Raph Crouan has joined C4 Ventures as Venture Partner, where he will lead business development and investor relations for the C4V II fund.
