Looking for startup funding?
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.
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.
Leave it to the experts
Throughout the years we’ve accumulated a vast amount of experience in the startup, entrepreneur, and investment ecosystems, which means we have a wealth of knowledge to tap into when necessary. We also have access to our community of founders, investors, and advisors on hand to help out with industry-specific startup advisory help, too.
We know the trials of startup success
We know you will face many trials in your entrepreneurial and fundraising journey. We know these trials because we’ve experienced them personally, as founders and investors we anticipate them in advance and strategise accordingly. Our private investment network invests rapidly and our broad network of global VCs, Family Offices, and Angels are ready to back winning startups.

Seed stage to Series B, and beyond.
We work with founders to help them raise funding from Seed to Series B. We do this by designing a comprehensive investment strategy, introducing relevant investors, and executing successful funding campaigns.
Our goal is to give you the skills and expertise to set you up for successful fundraising, while building up your investor network that can be tapped into at future stages. Financial consulting for startups is recommended at all funding stages, but the earlier you engage, the more value you can derive from the process.

We will therefore help you drive growth and scale up with our investment strategy workshops and fundraising consulting services that are catered towards your business needs. Let us help you accelerate your business to a scaleup, and perhaps unicorn, faster than you would without us.
