Xceed and Trind Ventures

We invested in Xceed in autumn 2022, making Xceed one of our first investments from our second fund. While the business had taken a heavy hit during COVID, Mattia and Luca showed resilience and pushed the company back to the growth track. We led a round of 2 million euros, joined by Best Nights VC (the corporate venture capital arm of Jägermeister), Superhero Capital, and angel investors. 

“When we met the team, we were impressed with the quality of their work and attention to detail. It was clear to us that their solution was the best designed to meet and exceed the market expectations. In addition, Mattia and Luca had demonstrated their skills as the founders, navigating through difficult times and coming out stronger.”

After our investment, the growth has continued. We are excited to see what the future holds for Xceed.
