Our Investment Approach

To further our vision, we recognise that it is imperative that the best social tech ventures have access to the capital they need to scale.

Our research has highlighted that the current gap in the availability of equity investment, particularly at the seed stage, is limiting many social tech ventures from reaching their full potential.

Building on a decade of funding early stage ventures at the pre-seed stage, we are now expanding our offer by establishing a dedicated fund to invest in the strongest ventures and support their growth. Our fund is supported by the UK government’s Department for Digital, Culture Media and Sport.

Our investment approach is aligned to our vision. We see that ventures who are focused on social transformation have the greatest potential for growth and impact at scale.

We focus on three core areas where we have identified the greatest opportunity for social transformation to be facilitated by tech; communities, health and wealth.
