UK VC Amadeus Capital promotes two to partner


pintoTechnology-focused investment firm Amadeus Capital Partners has promoted Jason Pinto and Pat Burtis to partners.

Pinto, pictured, joined the firm in 2006 as an associate after working as a member of E Ink Corporation’s technology and product development team that commercialised the first electronic ink display, deployed in Amazon’s Kindle.

Burtis also was hired by Amadeus in 2006 after working for Bain & Company, at McKinsey and startup H2Onsite.

Pinto and Burtis were part of the team that developed the investment thesis for Amadeus IV Digital Prosperity Fund.

CEO Anne Glover said, “Jason and Pat have contributed greatly to Amadeus’ investments from our third fund and their international backgrounds – Pat from the USA and Jason from Trinidad – have brought important perspectives to the development of our global Digital Prosperity Fund.”

Amadeus held a $75m first close for its IV Digital Prosperity Fund in July last year. The firm has raised more than £550m for investments since it was launched in 1997.

Major businesses built by the firm include single chip bluetooth radio maker CSR, genetic analysis systems business  Solexa and optical networking business Transmode.
