HOW WE INVEST – BACKING PROGRESS
Portfolio construction model
We invest at an early stage (seed and series A) and will typically make follow on investments at a later stage once a company has hit specific milestones and shown strong growth.
We look for two types of companies: ‘high potential’ – have developed a ground-breaking product or IP that could disrupt the market and ‘early growth’ –have launched their product and achieved early success.
SECTORS WE INVEST IN
Technological solutions that mitigate the impact of climate change.
Future of work
Technology to enhance and simplify work life.
Future of retail
Evolving retail formats and technologies with the power to change the ways we shop.
