Firat Ileri becomes new Managing Partner of Hummingbird VC, as company seeks to grow – TechCrunch

Jul 9, 2021

Firat Ileri becomes new Managing Partner of Hummingbird VC, as company seeks to grow – TechCrunch Seed investment firm Hummingbird VC, which previously invested in Deliveroo, Peak Games, MarkaVIP and Kraken, has a new associate director. Former partner Firat Ileri – who at 28 became one of the youngest VCs in Europe when he joined in 2012 – succeeds founding partner Barend Van den Brande, who will now assume a more strategic role within of the cabinet. Ileri grew up in Cyprus and studied electrical engineering, computer science and operations research at MIT. At Hummingbird, he led the company’s early investments in Latin America and Southeast Asia. Ileri initially introduced the co-founders of Gram Games, led their first investment, and helped sell the company to Zynga for half a billion. He also led the Peak Games sales process in 2020, which reached $ 1.8 billion, making history Turkey’s biggest tech release to date. Founded in 2010, Hummingbird is currently in its fourth fund of $ 200 million, raised in Q4 2020, and said to invest from Europe to India, SEA, LATAM, Turkey and more recently to United States. Firat recently led Hummingbird’s early investments in technical biology, investing in Billiontoone, the SF-based precision diagnostic company in prenatal and liquid biopsy, which raised a funding round of $ 55 million. . He also invested in Kernal Biologics, an mRNA 2.0 therapy company focused on oncology. Van den Brande said: “From the moment Firat joined us at the very start of Hummingbird he started running. His eye for unique and ambitious founding teams, his unmatched expertise in seed investment, his persistence and genuine understanding of the needs of start-ups have made him an invaluable asset to Hummingbird and all of the founders we work with. . I am only delighted that Firat is taking on this role and leading the Hummingbird family and portfolio for years to come. Ileri said the company’s thesis was to invest in great founders: “We spend a lot more time trying to figure out who these people are and what makes them special. In a way, we look for anomalies in people and we believe that the best companies are created with non-linear backgrounds. So, this is the thesis. He declared that the team had grown to lead this vision: “Before, we were a boutique fund, but our ambition is to be more so and above all to look for founders who have an independent spirit and great ambitions. To be able to find more businesses, we have become more global, so we have a better chance of finding those special stories. “
