Formation of deep tech fund imec.xpand II

Cresco assisted the general parter of imec.xpand with the formation and fundraising of its second early-stage fund with an initial committed capital of €150 million, after having assisted them five years ago with the formation of the first fund and several imec spin-offs.

imec.xpand is an early-stage deep tech investor who leverages the knowledge, expertise, infrastructure, and network of imec, the world-leading research and innovation hub in nano-electronics and digital technology.

The independently managed imec.xpand funds invest in ambitious startups that benefit significantly from imec’s knowledge, expertise, network and/or infrastructure in the development of their innovative, technology roadmap.
