Lisbon’s Paulo Andrez


Paulo Andrez

Think angel investing is only about investing locally?

Portugal’s Paulo Andrez might have you thinking twice…

We’ve crossed paths in Madrid, Istanbul and Warsaw; he’s involved in research for EBAN.

These interviews are often arranged for early mornings, and especially when calling from Los Angeles to Europe, but I miscalculated the time and this call started before dawn, leaving my co-host, San Diego’s David Barach, well, leaving him out for the first part of the interview.

Once we all wake up we’re off to the races, with Paulo leading us on a wide ranging discussion of early stage investing in Portugal and all across the continent, including plans for a large fund:

At EBAN we are lobbying the European Investment Fund, and we expect that EIF will launch an initiative of 1 Billion Euros for the period 2014-2020, for Co-Investment Funds in Europe. This will make a revolution in several countries in Europe, because many governments will co-invest along the EIF and BAs, and we believe that the total investment capacity will reach 5 billion euros.

It’s Part II of a three part series on Research. Listen to Paulo: stream
