YPOG advises Picus Capital on the structuring of the €200 million Picus Venture Fund II

Berlin, February 2024 YPOG advised Picus Capital Management on the structuring of the venture capital fund Picus Ventures Fund II. The fund has a target volume of €200 million and has already reached 70% of this target volume in the first closing.

This vintage fund has been established as a German fund structure and more than doubles the volume of its predecessor, Picus Venture Fund I, which Picus Capital initiated in 2021.

Investors in the fund include selected institutional anchor LPs as well as European family offices with a deep-rooted entrepreneurial history across industry champions and prominent tech unicorns, some of whom are participating again after having invested in its predecessor, Picus Venture Fund I.

Picus Venture Fund II will invest predominantly in promising early stage technology companies globally, leveraging the access and information advantage that Picus Capital's approach to early stage investing provides to achieve superior returns through a risk-adjusted structure.
