About us

C4 Ventures is a leading European venture fund founded by Pascal Cagni (VP & GM Apple EMEIA 2000-2012).

Based in London and Paris, we typically invest in early stage (Series A) startups based in Europe and later stage startups seeking to expand into European markets.

Our goal is to create a different kind of venture firm, one that focuses on partnering with entrepreneurs to navigate the complex European landscape.

We are passionate and knowledgeable about three themes:

• Smart Hardware
• Future of Commerce
• Digital Media

Both people and products drive our investments. We look for founding teams who are not afraid of challenging the status quo and want to revolutionise industries and practices — hence our explosive name.

Our team has strong experience in product development, omni-channel/go-to-market strategy and scaling up businesses in Europe and globally.
