We invest in technology entrepreneurs that are building something important:-
Something that, with the right investment, support & connections, might even change the world.
We're scouring the UK for the brightest, boldest entrepreneurs with global ambitions, to help create the iconic, industry-changing companies of the future
How we work
We believe venture capital should be designed to 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.
We're in it for the long term
We're part of BGF, with £2.5B on the balance sheet: - this means we can focus on investing in companies and supporting them, not raising new funds.
We call it patient capital.
With £200M to invest, we are the largest ever UK-focused Venture fund.
Our UK focus means we are nearby for entrepreneurs.
And we benefit from the deep resources of BGF, with 120 people across the UK, and expert teams dedicated to talent, marketing and operations support
What we look for
We invest £1M - £6M in early-stage UK technology companies that we believe have the potential to be global successes
We look for: - Exceptional founding teams with long-term vision - Innovative products that could change an industry (or create a new one) - Large and ideally global addressable market - Promising early customer engagement & feedback - Exceptional growth - Highly scalable and defensible business models
What excites us is not the size of your company today, but the potential tomorrow.
Meet the team
We don't pretend to know your business better than you do. But we've been through our own ups and downs founding, running, and selling companies - so we know how it feels to be in your shoes.
