Index has announced the closing of the Index Ventures V fund of EUR 350M, still focused on early-stage investments. This time, however, the geographical focus is more explicitly stated to include also non-European countries such as Israel and the US.

The swift fundraising is impressing and worth all respect, and shows that the team and the LP’s see the coming period as a very interesting one for making early-stage venture investments. This is very much in line with our view of the market at Creandum.
