Lux Capital closes fifth fund with $400 million

Lux Capital, an NYC-based venture capital firm, has closed its fifth growth fund with $400 million.

According to a Form D filling within the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, 142 investors participated in the offering of Lux Capital’s fifth fund.

The filing lists partners Peter Hebert and Josh Wolfe as people involved with the investment.

Hebert and Wolfe co-founded Lux Capital in 2000 and lead the firm as managing partners. The fund’s investment team also includes Adam Kalish, Adam Goulburn, Zach Schildhorn and Bilal Zuberi.

Also as part of the funding, Renata Quintini has joined the firm as a new partner. Quintini joins Lux from Felicis Ventures where she invested in companies including Dollar Shave Club and was also an early investor in Bonobos, FinSMEs reports.

The firm’s sole fashion tech investment is Sols Systems. Sols develops 3-D printed shoe insoles  and just launched Sizeright, a B2B platform that helps retailers give shoppers an easier way to find out if a particular shoe will fit.
