Mattias Ljungman, Founder & CEO, Moonfire Ventures
Mattias is the founder and CEO of Moonfire Ventures. He recently announced his departure from Atomico, where he had been co-founding partner for 13 years. The fund amassed $1.25bn assets under management, counting Supercell, Klarna, Viagogo and LendInvest amongst its key investments.
In 2019, Mattias founded Moonfire, a European seed fund focused on helping founders at the very start of their journeys to create the right foundations for exponential growth. For the last decade, he has seen how US seed has flourished, driving strong returns with successful funds such as FirstRound, Felicis, Floodgate, Upfront, Uncork and True Ventures. The same evolution is accelerating in Europe as a flood of late stage capital boosts demand for seed opportunities. Moonfire is perfectly placed to take a leading position in the nascent European seed ecosystem to help the next generation of founders.
Mattias holds a Masters degree from the Stockholm School of Economics and a BA with Honors from McGill University.
