OpenOcean - Early-Stage Venture Capital
Founded in 2008, by key persons behind MySQL AB (sold to Sun Microsystems, Inc) and its successor, MariaDB (NYSE: MRDB), OpenOcean is a uniquely qualified pan-European early-stage venture capital investor.
The OpenOcean General Partnership jointly has over 45 years of software investment experience across multiple geographies, investment stages, and investment lifecycles.
Our experience has helped us clearly define our thematic investment approach which focuses on early stage technical companies that drive the surging data-economy.
Our deep knowledge of the underlying software and technology stacks of companies, coupled with our operational and scaling experience, provide us with unique insights and deep expertise for scaling technical start-ups from Europe to global category leadership.
To date, we have launched three flagship early-stage funds, and one opportunity fund.
