The first, of course, is assets under management. Partech has already announced the intention to raise a large fund for 2015 – what hasn’t been announced is that the fund size will be at least €300 Million. Next to Index Ventures’ €400 Million fund, this begins to look pretty good. Add on Partech’s current €130M fund and the other fund that they are raising – Partech Entrepreneur II, a follow-up to the 30 Million seed fund they raised last year, and you’ve got the right amount of ammo. Given that the aforementioned Tier One European VCs all now have boots on the ground in Paris, this looks like the right place to be.
