Our Mission

We back founders poised to change the world! With our startup fundraising services, we aim to back only the most innovative technology startups from the UK and Europe, mainly B2B SaaS and Deep Tech startups helping them become category-defining companies.

As a startup funding consultant, we take a comprehensive approach to due diligence for high-quality early-stage investment acceleration.

Our primary goal is to educate entrepreneurs and inform investors of the best deals and then facilitate the deal for both parties.


We employ our investment and startup operational experience to unearth value and mitigate investment risk within 4 weeks.

We help you get through the VC door and avoid falling at the final due diligence hurdle. We’ll work intensively to get you investment-ready and funded with startup fundraising services tailored just for you.


We focus on Seed to Series B raises from £1m to £25m, and as a startup funding consultant, we use our formidable investor network to get your startup funded.

We select the best startups and curate deals for our private members’ club, global family offices, and VC funds. In addition, we can also co-invest or invest up to £200k directly via an SPV from our sister business Shoreditch VC.

Why 7startup?

Guidance that’s tailored to you

We know that no two founders are the same, and neither are their startups. Therefore we curate our startup advisory guidance to each founder, getting to know them on a personal level before tailoring our fundraising strategy and workshops. Above all, we will always embed investor psychology for a winning valuation, financial narrative, pitch deck, and investment-grade financials.

Our Sectors

Cryptocurrency & Blockchain
Business Automation Software
Fintech & Insurtech
Climate Tech & Impact
AI/ML & Big Data
Digital Health

Are we a match?

Our startups are top-notch, with innovative concepts and strong teams. We are very selective, assessing the team, market, traction, and product, and if we engage, we only introduce entrepreneurs to our elite group of investors after they have had ample time to develop both their company and their team.

Your startup should have:
Have at least 2 full-time founders
Be at the Seed, Series A, or Series B Stage
Demonstrate market traction
Be based in the UK or Europe
You should have:
Have passion, determination, and resilience
Have unique insight into solving a problem
Be operating and experienced in at least one of our target sectors
Our work ethic is strong
but our criteria is strict.

So if you tick a lot of our boxes, contact us today.
