Berlin A YPOG Team led by Fabian Euhus provided comprehensive legal, regulatory and tax advice to venture capital investor Project A Ventures on the structuring of its fourth fund generation, Project A Ventures IV. To date, this is the VC firm’s largest fund, closing at approximately $375 million and bringing Project A's total assets under management to $1 billion. The limited partners of Project A Ventures IV include institutional investors from the U.S. and Europe, selected European companies and German SMEs, and well-connected entrepreneurs.  

The new fund will invest in startup teams spearheading the growth and development of their industries. It will focus on sectors in B2C and B2B, including FinTech, retail, enterprise software, data infrastructure, supply chain and climate technology. As an investor, the fund will participate in transactions ranging from pre-seed to Series A financing rounds.  

Project A also announced the expansion of its private equity co-investment practice, placing up to $80 million in private equity transactions. With more than a decade of experience in investing in and scaling early-stage companies, the VC firm has a strong track record of private equity transactions. Throughout the past few years, Project A has already built a portfolio of 11 private equity co-investments. By investing alongside PE funds, the fund’s new initiative demonstrates its commitment of investing during the entire lifecycle of a business.
