We Are A Global Force In Investment Capital
A simple idea
We have consistently seen a degradation in quality services and reputable partners for Founding teams over the years. While we have always actively supported and engaged our Investors, we believe that startup teams deserve better. So simply put we serve both the interests of the teams we raise for, and the investors we present to. Fairness, honesty and a win-win approach at all times is our commitment.

From Feb 2019 and fairly consistently until October
our group relieved 100+ pitch-decks and negotiated
a record number of deals to term sheet.1 of 3
In the month after Covid-19 gripped the world we was both Startup
and Investor interest plummet, but by May we have seen not only a big bounce back in startups
but their quality has been outstanding and the result,
despite a significant number of Investors still not entering
the market, is our best by far month (total dealflow Vs Success) in our history.2 of 3
We have not been relaxing over lockdown
Instead we have built our an impressive number of
both Investor and Founder focused solutions to help you
not only recover quickly but thrive in a post-pandemic market.3 of 3
