Fika Ventures seeks $50 mln for inaugural fund


Eva Ho, formerly with Susa Ventures, and Tianxiang Zhuo from Karlin Ventures, have filed a pair of regulatory documents for newly launched Fika Ventures. The Los Angeles firm is seeking $50 million in commitments, according to the filings (here and here). The firm will focus on startups in Los Angeles and the San Francisco Bay Area.

As previously reported, Ho, a co-founder of Susa Ventures, is not participating in that firm’s second $50 million seed-stage fund. She previously told PE Hub Network that the split from Susa was her decision and that it was amicable. She said she remains involved in Susa’s first fund.
