Episode details

Today we’re talking to Luis Shemtov and Elad Verbin are two of the three founding partners behind Lunar Ventures - Europe's hands-down most technical early stage VC investing in frontier computer science deep tech. The result was an episode full of learnings packed in great one-liners for emerging managers - from a team that closed 4 Fund of Funds.

In this episode you’ll learn:

- What made Lunar so sexy that they managed to land four European Fund of Funds & bounds of established GPs
- How months of iteration around European deep tech founders’ problems led to the founding of Lunar Ventures
- Why emerging managers need to solve for the question of why LPs should invest in the first close & how Elad thinks about it.
- Why raising SPVs is a poor entry route into deep tech VC & what it means to be trailblazing in the VC Twilight Zone.
