Atomico was established in 2006 by Niklas Zennström, the co-founder and CEO of Skype and by Mattias Ljungman. The goal is to help the next generation of entrepreneurs outside Silicon Valley to build the future billion-dollar, category winning, technology companies. Atomico has kept a consistent focus on early-stage European investments, essentially in the Consumer IT and SaaS sectors, where it was able to invest early in: Jawbone, Stripe, Skype and Supercell.
