SixThirty Ventures in Europe/ EMEA- gathering momentum across the pond

A “travelogue” of twenty months since we setup a physical presence in the region.

As a global investor from inception, SixThirty has traveled (and looks forward to the day we can again) the world cultivating relationships with founders, investors, corporates, and others in startup ecosystems on every continent (sans Antartica, for now!).

Without further ado — meet our newest portfolio companies in EMEA!

Co-founded in 2018 by Oliver Werneyer, Carl Strempel, David Scott Turner and Mark Jerome, Zurich-based Imburse is a “payments orchestrator” offering insurers and other corporates integration-free access to the global payment ecosystem. It won the “Finance IT Innovation Award 2019 — Ecosystem” award, was named to the DIA Top100 Insurtech 2019 and the “Ones to Watch” in the FinTech Power 50 report in 2019. We believe that in a pay-as-you-go, pay-where-you-are world, corporates are in need of a single point of integration to meet consumer payment expectations, and Imburse provides that for all their payment needs. We invested in a Series A financing round alongside leading global tech investors to further fuel their growth, taking them through our signature Go-to-Market program. Learn more in our interview with Imburse — Digital Transformation, the Time is Now.

How did we go about it?

There is no dearth of entrepreneurial activity in Europe, and while we are gung-ho and happy to see the enthusiasm, B2C players tend to dominate much of the buzz. We had to figure out our own “go-to-market” approach if we were to zero in on what we do best: Enterprise Technology focused on financial services, insurance, and information security.
