How we've helped
Pre-seed Stage Story
Ross Bailey, Founder
Ross was one of the very first pre-seed stage founders to work with us. After a successful stint running a Diamond Jubilee themed pop up shop in 2012, Ross arrived at Forward Partners determined to revolutionise the way people rented temporary retail spaces. 18 months later he had a phenomenally successful product and had raised a $10 million Series A from Balderton.
How we helped
We worked with Ross from day one to help design, develop and and grow his startup over the first 12 months. We continue to support Ross with hiring and interviewing key hires.
Seed Stage Story
Tal, Asi, Pedro and David, Founders
Wonderbly combines the power of amazing storytelling with the possibilities of technology, to create magical personalised experiences for kids. We led their seed round and 12 months later they raised $9million series A round from Google Ventures.
How we helped
Our team supported Wonderbly with their strategy, honing their pitch when fund-raising and continue to support them with recruiting talent.
