We announced $28M (25M€) of 1st closing of Hardware Club Fund I

After lots of hard work by the team, we're happy to announce 1st closing of 25M€ for our Fund I.

Our Fund I is unique in the sense that it's GLOBAL from all perspectives: we have global LPs (France, Japan, Taiwan) and we plan to invest globally. Our team has also always been global, featuring French, Taiwanese, American, Japanese, Canadian and Colombian.

Due to our diversity in every aspect, we believe we are able to find the best hardware entrepreneurs with the best game-changing technologies, wherever they are on earth. We'll provide the capital and the most complete supply-chain (manufacturing, retails, distribution) resources to help them succeed.

Don't hesitate to ping me if you believe you're such an entrepreneur. Our door is always open for you!
