Berlin — SMP advi­sed venture capi­ta­list La Fami­glia on the launch of its second fund. With a volume of 50 million, the fund is signi­fi­cantly larger than the first gene­ra­tion of funds laun­ched in 2017 and is desi­gned to support Tran­sTech compa­nies. Skype foun­der Niklas Zenn­ström as well as fund foun­der Jean­nette zu Fürs­ten­berg, the family offices of the Oetker, Hymer and Swarov­ski fami­lies as well as other well-known inves­tors parti­ci­pate in La Fami­glia II. La Fami­glia was compre­hen­si­vely advi­sed on legal and tax matters by the team led by SMP part­ner Fabian Euhus.

“Deve­lo­pers of trans­for­ma­tive tech­no­lo­gies are on a mission to improve human well-being. This important endea­vor will be further advan­ced with the launch of the new La Fami­glia Fund. We are plea­sed to have served as legal advi­sors to the team in this effort,” said SMP part­ner Fabian Euhus.
