Blossom Capital raised $85 million for its first European startup fund.




It was founded by 31-year-old investor Ophelia Brown and is one of the rare female-founded venture capital firms in Europe.




There is a stark lack of diversity in European venture capital, and Blossom says it wants to open to all founders regardless of their backgrounds.



A young, star investor has raised $85 million for a new tech venture capital fund which aims to go up against the major European funds to target early-stage startups.
Ophelia Brown, a former general partner at LocalGlobe and principal at Index Ventures, has closed her first fund for Blossom Capital. The company will invest in firms for Series A rounds, mostly writing cheques of between $5 million and $10 million.
Brown, 31 years old, is well-regarded within the European investor ecosystem. Her backers include Tom Stafford, managing partner of DST Global; Robinhood cofounder Vladimir Tenev, and Union Square Ventures partner Andy Weissman.
