one of the largest European early stage and growth funds, managed by Rocket
Internet Capital Partners Lux S.à r.l. The Fund will invest alongside Rocket Internet unless investments are
deemed strategic for Rocket Internet. In addition, Rocket Internet will
retain its focus on founder economics and therefore the Fund will not
