With more than $500 million under management and successes such as Skype (sold to eBay), Wix (recently announced its intention to go public in the US), Kupivip (Russia's leading luxury e-commerce company) and Freedompop (the leading free Internet provider in the US), the firm has established itself as one of the world’s pre-eminent early stage investment firms across a wide range of industries.
Mangrove chasses transformational ideas, which aim to take advantage of inefficient industries.

Their backgrounds cover operations, strategy, finance and entrepreneurship. With eleven different nationalities, Mangrove has one of the world’s most culturally diverse teams, making it the ideal choice for entrepreneurs looking to build global companies.
