Fontinalis Partners, a mobility-focused venture firm with offices in Detroit and Boston, has announced the closing of its US$104 million third fund, Fontinalis III. Fontinalis III brings the firm’s total committed capital to approximately US$270 million, and the fund is comprised of more than 30 limited partners spanning world-class institutional investors, individuals & family offices, and corporate investors with strategic relevance to mobility. In this new fund, the Fontinalis Partners team is primarily focused on investing in early-stage companies, from seed to Series B financings. Fontinalis will continue investing in startups directly impacting the movement of people and goods, as well as “enabling technologies” with outsized impacts in the mobility sector.
