In the last year, Miami’s investment infrastructure has strengthened dramatically, with more venture funds looking to the city as a hub. However, the focus has been for startups in the seed and smaller Series A stage. This may change soon. Richmond Global Ventures announced that they will be opening an office here in Miami.

According to The Starting Gate, the firm is raising an $80 million to $125 million venture fund focused on early-stage companies around the world and close to home.

“We feel confident that with three offices, one of them should be in Miami,” said venture capital investor Peter Kellner, who will be heading the fund in Miami.

As for its portfolio, Richmond Global Ventures invests in tech-driven companies with global applications in Series A and B rounds, typically writing $4 million to $6 million initial checks and reserving half of the fund for follow-on investments.

Richmond Global Ventures has already raised about half the new fund and is seeking limited partners in South Florida, with a goal of raising at least $10 million from this region
