Looking for startup funding?
With our startup advisory services, we aim to back only the most innovative technology startups from the UK and Europe, helping them become category-defining companies. We work as a startup funding consultant to forge long-term relationships with daring entrepreneurs who are just as passionate as we are.
We employ our investment and startup operational experience to unearth value and mitigate investment risk within 4 weeks.
Agile and adaptable, we’ll work intensively to get you investment-ready with startup advisory services tailored just for you.
We focus on pre-seed, seed, and Series A raises from £500k to £5m, and as a startup funding consultant we use our formidable investor network to get your startup funded.
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, business, and entrepreneur ecosystems, which means we have a wealth of knowledge to tap into when necessary. Additionally, we always have our community of founders, advisors, and investors on hand to help out with 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, which therefore allows us to 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.

7startup has been an exceptional partner – strategically advising & developing our investment collateral for pre-series A investment and managing our fundraising.

Practical, actionable investment advice.
Firstly, we help as a startup business consultant by providing practical, actionable startup advice. We then help accelerate your business through our proprietary accelerator methodology to get you ready for VC due diligence. Then activate our investor network, VCs, Family Offices, and Angels, to get you funded.
Seed stage, Series A, and beyond.
We work with founders to help them raise funding for seed stage, Series A, and beyond. We do this by designing a comprehensive investment strategy, introducing relevant investors, and executing successful funding campaigns. Although financial consulting for startups is recommended to startups at all funding stages, it is most importantly recommended to those looking for early stage investments.
Personalised, expert help
We understand the unique challenges that founders face because we’ve lived them personally. We will therefore help you drive growth and scale up with our strategy workshops and startup advisory services. Let us help you accelerate your business to a scaleup, and perhaps unicorn, faster than you would without us.
We may provide investment ourselves.
Amit and Namik may offer startup investment through one of their SPVs over at Shoreditch.vc. For more information on whether you fit their criteria, please visit the Shoreditch.vc website.
