Octopus Ventures

We’re talent scouts. Our Ventures team is always on the lookout for talented entrepreneurs and exceptional businesses. We look for people with great ideas and great business opportunities that need our help. We invest between £250,000 and £5 million to support these early-stage businesses. But it’s not just about the money – we look to get actively involved in many of our companies, and help them create, transform or dominate their industries.

Just like we did with LoveFiLM, Zoopla Property Group and Graze.

Been there, done that. Our Ventures team has grown to more than 16 people bringing substantial business and investment experience. Many of our team have been working together for more than a decade. What’s more, we work with a group of Venture Partners – exceptional business leaders, entrepreneurs and private investors – who invest on a deal-by-deal basis alongside our Ventures team. In total, our Venture Partners have invested around £30 million in growing UK businesses.
