Giza VC raises a $30m Polish buy-out fund


Giza VC, one of the leading venture capital firms in Israel, has created a $30m (approx. €21.4m) fund for investing in Polish companies, Israeli financial newspaper Globes reported. The money was raised in Poland, from private and institutional investors as well as from government funds.

Giza perceives Poland as one of the most important markets in Europe, thanks to its stable growing economy, large domestic market, strong banking sector, good universities and a sizeable population of science and engineering students.

News of the Polish fund first surfaced in April 2010. Giza said at the time that it aimed to invest €60m over the next eight years in Polish firms from sectors such as ICT, media, clean technologies and medical devices, with individual deals worth between €1-5m. According to the company, it has identified an unserved gap in the Polish market for venture capital, between business angels and small funds investing up to €1m in start-ups, and larger funds investing €5-25m in large, efficiently-run companies.
