Valyuu team

Co-founders of Valyuu: Arvin Esterabadi, Ferhat Topuz & Jingwei Ren

Valyuu was one of the first investments we did with GEC Capital. At that time co-founder & CEO Ferhat Topuz and his team had not even launched their marketplace model, so it was early-early, but we had convidence in the founders and their domain expertise. Happy we did!

Good to know: GEC Capital is expanding its fund to €5M, so we have some room left for interested investors. Please contact Thomas Mensink (firstname@goldeneggcheck.com) in case you’d like to learn more.
