What we look for


We work across all sectors where investment and technology can make a difference and where there are clear opportunities for growth.

 

We work with aspiring entrepreneurs at an early stage or with the owners of existing businesses to help them scale and expand.

 

We're business people and entrepreneurs not financiers; so we like to work with companies where we can add tangible operational value, not just money.

 

Our other criteria includes:

  • Management - we look for passionate, dedicated and hard working people that know what they want to achieve
  • Geography - we're focused on UK headquartered businesses, although our portfolio companies may have overseas operations
  • Investment - we invest up to £1m of equity as a minority or majority investor and can help to secure additional funding

Why work with us?



Experience

We have founded, grown and exited businesses of up to £500m of revenues and 2,500 people. We've had successes and "failures" and understand what it is like to run your own business. You can avoid pitfalls and accelerate your growth by harnessing our unique methods and approach to business.

Expertise

Our specialisms include sales and marketing, back office operations (Finance, HR, Legal, Commercial, IT), project delivery and technology. We have a large network of specialists that can help you address challenges in your business and harness growth opportunities.

Flexibility

Investment decisions are made quickly by our two founding Directors, and we can provide as little or as much support as you need. As a small agile investor, we can adapt quickly and evolve our relationship to suit your ever changing needs.
