Areas of Focus

Due Diligence

Evaluating the financial, legal, and operational aspects of a start-up, including the viability of the business, the strength of its management team, and the potential return on investment.

Portfolio Management

Managing a portfolio requires monitoring financial metrics, key performance indicators (KPIs), and other indicators of growth and success, with strategic guidance and support.


Funding early-stage companies may involve negotiating deal terms, providing mentorship, and connecting founders with other investors or strategic partners.

Exit Planning

Exit planning involves developing a strategy to maximise the value of the investment and preparing the company for a successful exit, either through an acquisition or an IPO.

Network Building

Building a network involves attending industry events, building relationships with investors, and connecting portfolio companies with potential customers, advisors, or partners.
