How we can help

We’re forward-thinking investors who understand the challenges of running a technology start-up or spin out.

We're here to support innovative technology ventures in a range of ways.

  • Initial venture capital (seed finance) to support launch 
  • Equity to finance pre-revenue research and development costs
  • Strong links with university research centres, regional incubators and access to additional business development support in Wales.
  • Co-investment from syndicates, angels and high-net worth individuals. 
  • Experienced contacts to strengthen management teams 

Whatever stage your venture is at we have the means and connections to help you reach your milestones.

As start-ups progress and move towards commercialisation we can offer additional support to help the process:

  • Loans and equity packages to finance later stages of research and development
  • Follow on investment to help reach key milestones
  • Further co-investment from syndicates, angels and technology focussed institutional investors
  • Experienced contacts to strengthen management teams and boards

Our portfolio has a number of examples of companies that have progressed from a seed funded start-up to multi-million pound investment round involving a syndicate of venture capitalists.

 

We can continue support your technology business through all stages – even up to (and beyond) an initial public offering (IPO).    An injection of development or expansion capital can significantly  boost your business' growth prospects, enabling you to:

  • Finance research and development costs
  • Hire new personnel
  • Introduce new products and services
  • Expand into new markets
  • Develop new sales channels
  • Purchase new plant, equipment, or machinery
  • Purchase stock to meet increasing demand
  • Move to larger premises
