What we do
We start, invest in and advise new tech companies.
We are entrepreneurs at heart and love to build things. We will start businesses in partnership with hard working co-founders with deep expertise in their domain. We will contribute our own time, effort and money to get the startup off the ground. We will also introduce and persuade relevant members of our personal networks to get involved or invest.
We like to be the "first money in", and to lead early stage investment rounds of £150,000 or so into tech companies that have demonstrated some "customer pull". We will also participate in rounds of up to £1,000,000 where there is a strong lead investor. We prefer to invest on an SEIS or EIS basis. We will on occasion participate in later stage rounds, however this is only on an exceptional basis. We do not charge fees to investors, nor do we charge success fees to startups.
We will advise businesses where we have relevant experience, such as in areas of sales, marketing, finance, strategy and any board or investor matters. Usually our advisory activities are restricted to our portfolio companies.
