Silicon Valley venture capital firm Sequoia Capital recently set up shop in Europe after hiring Luciana Lixandru away from Accel’s London office. Now, according to a tweet by Revolut product lead George Robson, the VC has recruited a second European partner.
Robson, who also previously co-founded Kickstart London, a student-run accelerator programme in the U.K. and has worked at Morgan Stanley as an analyst, announced via Twitter last week that he has joined Sequoia’s burgeoning European operation where he says he’ll be working with the team “to help founders across Europe build the next generation of transformative companies”.
Writes Robson: “After ~3 years at Revolut working with some of the brightest minds building the world’s first truly global financial super-app, it’s time for my next move. I’m excited to share that I will be joining Sequoia as a Partner in Europe in late August”. In a second tweet, he adds that there is “more opportunity and innovation [in Europe] than ever”.
