A new €20m venture capital fund aimed at Irish fintech and deep-tech start-ups is being established in Dublin by Finch Capital.

Finch Capital is an early-stage venture capital firm with offices in Amsterdam, London, Singapore and now Dublin.

In 2018, Finch Capital closed its second fund, with commitments of €110m.

The new fund is supported by a €10m investment from Enterprise Ireland.

“Finch Capital brings proven additional capacity and resources to Ireland combined with deep industry knowledge and connectivity in the sector,” said Kevin Sherry, executive director of global business development at Enterprise Ireland.

Announced at the Talent Garden fintech event ‘Appetite for Disruption’ in Dublin today (12 February), the new fund is focusing on early-stage companies in the fintech and deep-tech sectors, including AI, infosec and internet of things.
