We’ve invested in building a Ventures team that’s now approaching 20 strong with experience across a range of sectors and a track record of supporting entrepreneurs build their businesses. We’ve been working to support early stage businesses to grow fast for over ten years now and over that time we’ve built a network of entrepreneurs, angels and partners. This means we can offer unmatched expertise in helping small businesses grow, offering support to ensure the businesses we back have the best chance for success.
As an entrepreneurial business we get the challenges entrepreneurs face. In fact many of our ventures team have built their own businesses.
As well as seeking out early-stage businesses to invest in, the team manages the many of our VCT and EIS portfolios for thousands of Octopus investors.
The team is headed by Alex Macpherson.
