We take a personal approach to business, developing close working relationships with the companies we invest in, empowering them to create businesses of real value. As an owner-managed business, we understand the daily challenges of operating and growing a successful business.

Our regional and sector focus can give companies access to our specialist knowledge, resources and expertise and networking opportunities with other companies in the portfolio.We can make decisions quickly. We have a rigorous investment appraisal process but dedicated time and energy means that lead times to completion of investments are always tightly managed.

We look for talented management teams with a well developed proposition and vision, providing the equity capital they need to be successful and guiding them through to a profitable exit. Our aim is to achieve this within seven years.Our ability to assist our investee companies is demonstrated by the numerous profitable exits achieved across all three of the funds that we manage. Our experience shows that many businesses will require more than the initial round of funding we have provided and we work proactively with our investee companies to introduce them to appropriate funders at the right time.

Ultimately, we are looking to provide exits and returns for our investors within five years of an investment, which we believe is in alignment with the opportunities available in our targeted sectors, and is appropriate to the venture investment model returns we expect for our Investors.
