We invest in the most globally promising Portuguese and Spanish companies

Indico invests in tech and sustainable companies. Our tech funds target unique Web3, Software as a Service (SaaS), marketplaces, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT), fintech, cybersecurity and digital companies. Our investment in tech companies ranges, mostly, from Pre-Seed to Series A (from 100k to 10M euros), and we selectively back companies at Series B and C as well.

While we take sustainability into account in all our investments, we also have specific funds that seek to invest in climate action focused companies. Particularly, in what relates to the ocean, we focus on globally differentiated startups that can have a positive impact on marine ecosystems and also on ocean-related SMEs that have the potential to significantly expand their global footprint and sales. In this area of focus, we target companies with headquarters or very significant operations in Portugal and can invest between 100k and 5M Euros per company.

We are often the first investors into a startup!

We love working close to ambitious and driven founders. This is why we created the Indico Founders Program. It's the best way to start working with the Indico Partners when the company is at a Pre-seed or Seed level. Tech or ocean related startup founders that apply to our Indico Founders Program, and get selected to participate in the program, will not only get Indico’s funding but will have a chance to stay at our offices for a year, interacting daily with our team. Participants will also integrate into the Indico wider community of pre-seed to late stage startups and have a chance to meet, discuss and learn with dozens of successful founders, Indico’s local and global partners, and many of our fund investors and VC co-investors from all over the world. You might even bump into a celebrity or two that passes through our offices now and again :)
