Loyens & Loeff Luxembourg provided legal advice to our long-standing client EQT Fund Management S.à r.l. in connection to the successful closing of EQT Ventures II, securing commitments totalling EUR 660 million. The team assisted the client in the structuring, setting-up, bridge-financing and closing of the fund.
We also advised our client on the launching and closing of EQT Ventures I about three and a half years ago.

EQT Ventures II ("the Fund") will build on the multi-stage strategy of its predecessor fund EQT Ventures I, which secured commitments totalling EUR 566 million in 2016, investing in the next generation of ambitious founders and building global winners out of Europe. In addition to partnering early on with bold European founders, the Fund will continue to bridge the US and Europe, and will help startups scale out of Europe and US companies scale in.

The Loyens & Loeff team was led by Investment Management partners Marc Meyers and Christophe Boyer, with the support of senior associate Charlotte Ferrand and associates Teodora Aleksieva and Agata Szymoniak.
Other team members included Sarah Ambulante, Associate, and Nadège le Gouellec, Counsel.

More details about the closing can be found here and here.
