Our focus

Growth equity for technology companies

Tailored investment

We invest in a range of high growth technology companies. Every one of them is unique and so is the funding and support we offer. We will get to know you, your business model and your market opportunity so that we can structure an investment to meet your specific growth plans. Alongside making an investment in the company we can also acquire part of your stake, giving you the ability to generate some cash while continuing to lead and grow your business.

  • We invest across the UK and Europe to scale, internationalise and build value

  • In high growth technology companies disrupting, large global markets

  • With a funding requirement up to £40 million, providing tailored investments

  • Typically taking a minority stake and working with management not controlling

Partners for growth

We work closely with founders and management teams, helping to build a high-performance board in every company we back, focusing on long-term success, not short-term profit. Practical, supportive and straightforward to deal with, our investment team can help steer strategy and make introductions which can positively influence your business at critical lifecycle moments.

  • As well as funding, we bring strong sector knowledge, operational experience and access to our network. We also bring commitment, conviction and a long term view. All of this can support your growth ambitions.
