Co-investment by Portuguese VCs and Business Angels investors
Post updated at https://www.pedroalmeidavc.com
I did some analysis in co-investments in Portugal and I thought the results were quite interesting. So I am sharing below the main takeways.
I believe the analysis can help Entrepreneur understand:
- Which investors have good relationships and probably will share notes on your discussions
- Which investors you can’t put in the same cap table
- Which funds have good links with international investors
The below analysis can also be interesting for international funds, to understand which are the go-to funds in Portugal to co-invest.

- Portugal Ventures is one of the most active Portuguese investors and also one of the most active co-investing as well. It is very common for Portugal Ventures to bring other investors in the round.
- On the private investors’ side, Bright Pixel and Olisipo Way are the funds with the highest number of co-investors.
- On the other side, LC Ventures and Best Horizon seem to invest mostly on their own or to invest with Core Angels. The remaining investors have limited co-investments until now.
- By design, 200M is a co-investment fund, so it is a natural choice for funds, particularly for later-stage funds. Indico Capital Partners and Armilar Venture Partners are the ones benefiting more from 200M in Portugal in 2020 until now.
