The UK’s Crane Venture Partners, an early-stage VC that focuses on data-driven enterprise startups, has closed its first $90 million institutional fund, Crane I.

Crane’s founders, Scott Sage and Krishna Visvanathan, have previously invested as a team in companies like Icera, H2O.ai, Netronome, Onfido, and Trustpilot. The firm’s partner Andy Leaver brings 20 years experience in scaling Silicon Valley enterprise startups, including Ariba, HortonWorks, SuccessFactors, and Workday.

The list of LPs of Crane I includes MassMutual Ventures, British Patient Capital (BPC) and “other institutions, high-profile founders and venture capitalists spanning the US, Europe and Asia,” the firm stated in a press release.

The firm has already made a few investments in data-focused companies across Europe, including Aire, AVORA, Senseon, Stratio Automotive, and Tessian.
