What we do
We support a select number of entrepreneurs simultaneously in building their technology companies from a very early stage. We specialise in high growth potential, marketplace oriented, businesses with efficient operational models (often referred to as ‘SaaS’).
How we do it
We work with dynamic teams that own ‘the problem’ that they are seeking to resolve but who can benefit from our experience of navigating funding rounds, building scalable technology and managing developers. We support great entrepreneurs.
We ‘risk share’ with teams. When you are working for equity we will work for equity. When you are being paid little (or nothing) we are paid little (or nothing). It breaks the mould as we work long-term, wholly aligned to the team and have a singular focus on growing the companies we are involved with.
We have a constantly evolving network of individual and strategic investors who are interested in the companies with which we work. We also nurture a roster of developers and can provide the environment in which businesses can grow within our offices in Southwark (London) and Bratislava.
