London-headquartered Felix Capital, which has already invested in the likes of Deliveroo, Farfetch, Goop and Peleton, has raised an additional $300 million to continue its strategy of investing in digital lifestyle brands.

The Soho-based VC firm, founded in 2015 by former investment banker Frederic Court, now has $600m under management.

Court (pictured) said the fund would now have some "flexibility to add a few later-stage companies”.

Antoine Nussenbaum, partner at Felix Capital, said: “This new fundraising enlarges and strengthens our investor base."

He added: "We will continue to offer differentiated capital, with an ability to back founders driven by passion, authenticity and ambition of having a large and positive impact on the world.”

Felix also announced that former Farfetch operating chief Andrew Robb is to join the firm as an advisor.
