Octopus Ventures

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.

The team has grown to more than 18 people bringing substantial business and investment experience. Many of our team have been working together for more than a decade. We also 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.

Contacting the Ventures team

If you’re an entrepreneur seeking venture capital funding for your business, do consider contacting one of the team via AngelList or directly via email. We recommend that you tailor your approach to whoever on the team has the most relevant experience and expertise and please avoid sending applications to more than one person at a time. By far and away the best way to approach us is through a mutual contact or someone that we have worked with before as warm introductions help to give us context on you and how best we may be able to help.

We'd love to talk to you, call us on 0800 316 2295
