At 7startup, we make sure that our goals are aligned with yours, so you can feel comfortable knowing we are doing everything we can to secure the best possible deal for your startup.

We focus on due diligence and the best startups
Our intensive due diligence and tight selection criteria mean that we select the best startups, and personally curate deals for our investor club and vast investor network of Angels, Family Offices, and VCs that span the UK, EU, USA, Middle-east, and Asia.
Seed stage, Series A, and beyond
We work with founders to help them raise funding for the seed stage, Series A, B, and beyond. We design a comprehensive investment strategy, introduce relevant investors, and execute successful funding campaigns. Although our workshops with in-depth investment acceleration are recommended to startups at all funding stages, it is a pre-requisite for early-stage investments.
Personalised, expert help and a long-term partnership
At 7startup, we curate our process to guide you with relevant and tailored metrics, as well as a methodical review of your investment collateral and data room. We dig deep to hunt for the best-fit investors whilst you focus on growing your business. Then help you accelerate your business to a scaleup, and perhaps unicorn, faster than you would without us.
We may provide investment ourselves
Our sister investment vehicle Shoreditch VC may offer startup investment through an SPV. Perhaps in your current round or in the future.
