Our founding vision was to build a world-class venture capital firm in Cambridge, Europe’s largest and fastest growing deep tech ecosystem, and generate leading financial returns.

Since our foundation we have worked hard to expand our business and in doing so help to enhance the ecosystem in support of our portfolio companies. Our team assist and support our founders on a range of business matters. In addition, we can provide information, resources and introductions in areas such as financial services, recruitment and compensation.
Our Advisory Panel is comprised of leading scientists, entrepreneurs, and industry veterans and we have access to world class scientists through our relationship with the University of Cambridge. We regularly host events and participate in multiple activities in the ecosystem. You can find further details here. In addition, we have a range of content, including podcasts and video interviews, which can be found in our Insights section here.
