We reported on the Visionaries Club in 2019, a new, Berlin-based, European VC firm founded by Sebastian Pollock and Robert Lacher. At that time, Visionaries Club had raised two new €40M micro-funds for seed and growth stage B2B.
Pollock was previously a VC at e.ventures in San Francisco and also founded Amorly, which spun off into Pro7Sat.1 Media Group. Lacher was a founding partner of La Familia, previously an early investor in FreightHub, Coya, Asana Rebel, OnTruck and Personio.
Visionary Club has now announced a second B2B-focused fund, with a new €150m Seed Fund and €200m Early Growth Fund invested so far in companies such as Personio, Miro, Choco, Xentral, Truelayer, Vay, Taxdoo, Yokoy, Pigment, Leapsome and Gtmhub, with VCs such as It is with companies like Sequoia, Accel, Index, Lightspeed or Bessemer.
In a statement, Lacher said: “Over 20 of our founding LP founders are founders we’ve backed in the past, so we’re extremely proud to now invest their personal money in our funds, such as Hanno Reiner (Personio), Jenny Podewils.” (Lepsom), Daniel Kachab (Choco), Christian Reber (Pitch/ Superlist) or the founders of Taxdu and Insfy.
The fund essentially operates as a micro-VC fund, which means it can lead seed investment deals, co-invest with large and multi-stage VC funds in Early Growth stage (Series B) deals.
It will also launch the Visionary Club’s science-driven ‘Tomorrow Fund’ to support science-backed startups at the pre-seed and seed stage.
In addition, Sahar Meghani and Marten Sarkadi Nagy have been promoted to partners.
London-based Meghani will take the lead role in managing the new growth fund, while Sarkadi Nagy will lead the seed fund’s activities.
