Over
half the money was raised last year and I’m told VentureFriends has
already done about 20 investments, but is keen to get the word out that
Greek entrepreneurs have another investor to approach. Interestingly,
unlike a lot of local European VCs, the firm’s 40 or so LPs are all
private. In other words, if I understand correctly, there is no
tax-payer money being gambled here.

Specifically, Apostolakis
says the fund will be investing amounts between €250-500,000 and can
follow on up to a total of 1 million. It is targeting startups with
strong teams and generating a little revenue, with
e-commerce/e-marketplaces, SaaS, AdTech, and on-demand services
remaining a focus.

“We want to see network effects or high
technology,” he tells me. “We look for innovating hustlers solving big
and important need-to-solve problems”.

In case you aren’t
familiar with Apostolakis’ work, he previously co-founded e-shop.gr, the
first e-tailer in Greece, and in 2011 he co-founded e-food, a food
delivery marketplace acquired in 2015 by Delivery Hero, providing a
major exit for the Greek startup ecosystem.

He’s also an active
angel investor, including recently investing in Doctoranytime, the
doctor booking app launched in Belgium by ex-Take Eat Easy team members.

Notably, he and Dimopoulo were also among the first angel investors in Taxibeat, the taxi app that sold to Daimler in February.
