SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 18, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nuno Gonçalves Pedro has joined Delta Partners as Partner in the firm’s San Francisco operation to bolster its corporate finance and investment team co-leading its digital practice, with a strong focus on the North American market.

Federico Membrillera, Managing Partner and Head of Corporate Finance at Delta Partners commented: “As a seasoned venture capitalist and angel investor, and board member of high-tech companies, Nuno will add tremendous value to our team. Nuno’s appointment signals Delta Partners’ commitment to strengthen and expand its successful exposure to digital players and its collaboration with the telecoms world.”

Gonçalves Pedro joins Delta Partners after having co-founded Strive Capital, a quantitative early-stage venture capital fund focused on consumer mobile applications, where he led various investments towards  IPO (Enish), acquisition (Everpix), or successful raising of equity (AppAnnie, KeepSafe).

In his role with Delta Partners, Gonçalves Pedro will work with the tech players in the San Francisco Bay area, through investment and by supporting them in their corporate finance and internationalization strategies.

Speaking about his appointment, Gonçalves Pedro said: "The firm’s ability to invest through its growth capital and early-stage vehicles, as well as its licensed corporate finance team and management consulting unit, make it a full service provider that can support companies from the earliest stages of product and business development through to successful funding and exit strategies. Working with Delta Partners gives me the perfect platform to more broadly contribute to the ecosystem in the Bay area and beyond.”

Prior to Strive Capital, Gonçalves Pedro was with McKinsey and Co as a Partner in Asia-Pacific and before that was charged with shaping the mobile industry’s agenda as Strategy Director for GSM Association, where he also led the creation of the Group’s first ever equity venture.

He has also been a member of the Jury for the Global Mobile Awards since 2007 and in 2006 he was recognized as one of the “top 26 Portuguese executives abroad”.

He holds post-graduate diplomas from Wharton School at UPenn, London Business School and the Stanford Executive Program at Stanford GSB.
