Our multi-strategy approach enables us to back the most promising founders early and continue to back them all the way to IPO or exit. We are long-term partners, and our scale means we can support founders at every stage of their growth journey: from strategic advice to introductions to partners, customers, and game-changing hires to access to M&A and other services more readily associated with financial advisors or banks.
We work alongside founders, supporting and guiding them with the benefit of our operational expertise. Each of our partners was once a founder themselves which makes us as interested in the day-to-day as much as we are in the board meetings. We are passionate about working hand in hand with entrepreneurs and finding novel solutions to key business matters.
We believe in being present. Startups are more successful when their investors are close not just spiritually, but physically. With offices in Europe’s most exciting tech hubs, a network that spans six continents, and a physical footprint that’s growing all the time, we’re able to apply global insights to founders’ specific situations.
We invest at every stage from idea to pre-IPO, but we have a very clear focus when it comes to the sectors we invest in. Over the past decade and more, we have doubled down on sectors that are shaping the future of how we live and work, and in which we have an enviable track record of helping scale some of the biggest European success stories. This discipline means the founders we back can be confident that we are the right partners to help them build transformational and category-defining businesses.
