We believe venture capital should serve entrepreneurs. That’s because we’ve been in your position. We’ve founded companies, built companies, sold companies. And we’ve had our fair share of failures along the way. So, we have the same attitude, ambitions, experiences and scars. And we try to work with the respect, empathy and honesty that entrepreneurs deserve.

Funding for high-growth ventures
With £200m to invest, we are the largest UK and Ireland-focused venture fund.
We invest for the long term and can provide further funding as the company continues to grow.
Investment of £1m-£6m
We invest for a minority equity stake (typically 10%-20%) in companies we believe can scale exponentially.
