King & Wood Mallesons advised Samaipata on the deal.
Samaipata, a European fund specialised in investments in seed-stage platforms and marketplaces in Europe, completed the launch of its second fund, Samaipata II Capital FCR, with a target size of €100 million. The fund, with €75 million of commitments already received, did its second closing over the summer.
With the new investment vehicle, Samaipata plans to build a portfolio of 20-25 companies, aiming at backing pan-European category leaders. The fund currently operates with a team of professionals based in London, Paris and Madrid.
A KWM Madrid office funds team was led by partners Isabel Rodríguez (Picture) and Ildefonso Alier, who are coordinating the multidisciplinary team of lawyers advising Samaipata. The team includes associate María de Orueta.
