A firm as unique as its approach
Over 40 years, Partech has built a team of independent thinkers to drive forward the technology landscape.
What began as the corporate venture arm of Bank Paribas soon became a fully independent firm, producing multiple generations of venture funds, with investments across North America and Europe, later strengthened by the opening of the Paris office in 1996.
When the dot-com bubble burst Partech bounced back even stronger. The team launched new funds with the backing of new investors, to support opportunities across Europe's fast emerging technology and entrepreneurial landscape. This was the dawn of a decade of growth. Partech kickstarted its seed franchise, launched a growth strategy - pioneering the asset class in Europe - and expanded with a pan-Africa fund. The team's ambition only continues to grow, with the impact growth initiative set up to tackle sustainability.
Today, the firm looks as unique as its approach, with a range of funds, a portfolio of 220 diverse businesses across sectors, in 40 countries across four continents. The Partech team looks to challenge founders, working with them side-by-side with them to drive digital transformation forward.
