Our investment process
Easy online application
We receive 800+ funding applications a year. They all start here – an online application to give us key information
After a ‘first filter’ check, one of our Deal Team members will engage to find out more, and explain our process in more detail
A subset of our most active 350+ specialist members reviews your funding opportunity, along with our team’s notes. They are looking to see whether we can, as a group, add value to your growth
Congratulations – you’ve been selected to pitch to our full membership. Only around 5% of applicants make it this far. We’ll work with you to ensure the maximum impact from this important stage.
Our specialist internal team and members will probe the risks and upsides of a potential investment, with our VC-standard due diligence process
We’ll sign investment agreements, transfer money, and agree a 100-day plan to give the best possible start
