Atomico, the venture capital firm started by Skype co-founder Niklas Zennström, has set out to raise $750 million for its fourth fund, according to a filling with the SEC. Based in London, Atomico backs technology companies. On Monday, it made a $25 million investment in LendInvest, an online marketplace for property finance in the UK.

Atomico collected $476 million for its Fund III in 2013 and closed its second fund on $165 million in 2010.

In addition to Zennström, the filing lists Mark Dyne, Nicole Ramroop and Roger Hanson as partners. A first close has not been reported.
