We believe that we have the best platform for Britain’s pre-seed and seed stage entrepreneurs and ventures. Our partnership with the founders that we back goes far beyond any cash consideration. The level of support that we provide is unrivalled in our ecosystem.
Pre-Seed stage typically means that an entrepreneur has some of the early building blocks of their business in place; the first version of their product may have been built, they may be seeing some initial revenue.
Seed stage typically means a business has been up and running for a little while and has received promising initial traction. There will be evidence of revenues and perhaps a small team.
No, we are a venture capital fund that provides operational support as well as finance. We invest in great entrepreneurs and help them with significant investment in terms of cash and our time across all disciplines. We don't lead rounds at Series A and beyond, but we do follow-on and continue to support our portfolio through to exit and beyond.
Our Head of Talent works across all our portfolio companies to help them hire amazing talent. We do this through a combination of headhunting for key hires, sharing our vast talent pool with our companies and helping with hiring strategy and job profiles. We are really pushing ourselves to make this a key service we provide to our partners.
