Benjamin Vedrenne-Cloquet and Régis Micheli announced the launch of the JuneX Capital Partners’ Founders Office, a new investment firm focused on backing entrepreneurs within the human capital and investment management sectors.

The Founders Office, which closed the “JuneX Evergreen Fund”, at €100M, leverages a founder-centric approach that combines the long-term perspective of a family office, the entrepreneurial mindset and agility of a business angel, and the investment capability of a pan-European institutional fund.  

JuneX supports businesses and investment firms, from startups and emerging sponsors to scaleups and established asset managers. It offers various patient capital solutions, including equity, debt and bridge financings, tailored to meet specific founders’ needs. In specific situations when JuneX possesses relevant industry experience or functional expertise, it may selectively work closely with founders. 

JuneX has strategically chosen to focus its investments on backing two types of entrepreneurs, both fundamental to innovation and sustainable economic development:

  • Entrepreneurs enhancing human capital: “Human Capital” is defined by economists as the education, knowledge, skills, health and environmental investments made by individuals and organisations to enhance their abilities, productivity and well-being, which in turn promotes economic and social development.
  • Entrepreneurs in investment management: Specialising in venture capital and private equity. This targets specifically emerging asset managers and financial sponsors seeking capital to back innovative companies, seed their first investments or scale their asset management firm (GP stakes).

Régis Micheli and Benjamin Vedrenne-Cloquet, co-founders of JuneX, stated: “We are proud to launch JuneX Capital Partners, our “Founders Office”, along with our debut investment fund, JuneX Evergreen Fund. Our platform is specially designed for founders, inspired by our own rollercoaster journey as entrepreneurs and investors, as well as challenges we tackled. Unlike most investment firms, our approach is not restricted by time horizon, investment stage and structural constraints. We are here to play the long game with patient and agile capital solutions for founders and to provide them with street-smart and genuine support, as peers and sparring partners. We aim to back challengers in Human Capital and Investment Management, two sectors fundamental to sustainability, innovation, and entrepreneurship.”
