It was in 2019 what we reported about Visionaries Club, a new Berlin-based European VC focused on B2B, founded by Sebastian Pollok and Robert Lacher. At the time, Visionaries Club had launched two new €40 million micro-funds for start-up and growth B2B.

Pollok was previously a VC at e.ventures in San Francisco and also founded Amorelie, which transitioned to Pro7Sat.1 Media Group. Lacher was previously one of the founders of La Famigliaan early investor in FreightHub, Coya, Asana Rebel, OnTruck and Personio.

Visionaries Club has now announced a second B2B-focused fund, with a new €150 million Seed Fund and €200 million Early Growth Fund. It has so far invested in companies such as Personio, Miro, Choco, Xentral, Truelayer, Vay, Taxdoo, Yokoy, Pigment, Leapsome and Gtmhub, in addition to VCs such as Sequoia, Accel, Index, Lightspeed or Bessemer.

In a statement, Lacher said: “We are extremely proud and humbled that more than 20 of our founders are LP founders we have supported in the past, who are now reinvesting their private money in our funds, such as Hanno Renner (Personio), Jenny Podewills ( Leapsome), Daniel Khachab (Choco), Christian Reber (Pitch/Superlist) or the founders of Taxdoo and Insify.”

The fund essentially operates as a micro-VC fund, meaning it can lead and co-lead Seed investment deals, and invest in early-growth (Series B) deals along with larger, multi-stage VC funds.

It is also launching the Visionaries Club’s science-driven ‘Tomorrow Fund’, to support science-driven startups in the pre-Seed and Seed phase.

In addition, Sahar Meghani and Marton Sarkadi Nagy have been promoted to Partners.

London-based Meghani will lead the management of the new Growth Fund, while Sarkadi Nagy will lead the seed fund’s operations.
