Technology growth

Tailored investment for technology companies

We invest in high growth technology companies across the UK and in Europe.

We offer growth equity, secondary investment (providing existing shareholders with an opportunity to realise value) and buyout capital. Investing at the growth stage we are usually minority investors, working alongside you, not taking control.

Typically investing up to £25 million we also fund larger deals, co-investing with others, including our own fund investors. We operate across a range of technology sectors, with particular expertise in enterprise software, consumer internet, energy technology and tech-enabled service businesses. And with substantial funds backed by blue chip institutional investors, we have the resources to continue to support you throughout your growth journey.

Our funding, together with our global network and experience of growing internationally focus technology companies, will ensure that you are best placed to achieve your ambitions.
