Index Ventures is a Europe- and San Francisco-based global venture capital firm, focused on making investments in information technology and life sciences companies.[1] Since it was founded in 1996, the firm has invested in businesses in more than 20 countries.[2]

History[edit]

Index Ventures has its origins in a Swiss bond-trading firm called Index Securities, founded by Gerald Rimer in 1976.[3][4] In 1992, Rimer recruited his son, Neil, to join the firm and together they launched its technology investment arm, which would evolve into an independent entity, Index Ventures.[4][5][6] Index Ventures was officially founded in 1996 by Neil Rimer, his brother David and Giuseppe Zocco, [7] when they raised a pilot fund of $17 million, followed by a $180 million fund in 1998.[4] That year the firm also launched its life sciences practice, when Francesco De Rubertis joined as a partner. [8] Headquartered in Geneva and Jersey, the firm opened an office in London in 2002[9] and in San Francisco in 2012.[10]

Partners[edit]

The firm's partners include Ben Holmes, Bernard Dalle, Danny Rimer, David Rimer, Dominique Vidal, Francesco De Rubertis, Kevin Johnson, Giuseppe Zocco, Michele Ollier, Mike Volpi, David Grainger, Neil Rimer, Saul Klein, and Robin Klein.

Index Ventures partner Danny Rimer has been named in Fortune’s “40 under 40” list of the top rising stars in business[11] and Forbes' Midas List of the top 25 deal makers in venture capital.[12] Saul Klein is among the most active in the European entrepreneur community, having co-founded Seedcamp to help European entrepreneurs build technology businesses, and The Accelerator Group (TAG).[13] Francesco De Rubertis was named by BioWorld as one of 28 “Movers & Shakers” predicted to shape the biotechnology industry over the next two decades.[14]

Investments[edit]

Among the firm's investments are the following:[15]
