Business Investment Made Simple

No matter how brilliant your mind or strategy, if you're playing a solo game you'll always lose out to a team.

Seeking Investment

We back great teams and help them build great businesses. We look for established, profitable businesses that have a niche in their markets and have a strong customer value proposition.

We both invest into businesses and acquire companies, supporting management buy-outs and retirement sales.

The pessimist complains about the wind. The optimist expects it to change. The leader adjusts the sails.

We back teams in growing businesses. Growth isn’t easy and there are challenges to overcome. From our experience, the key to success is to build the best team you can, build a great business plan and make sure it is well executed. We provide the right funding to underpin the journey.


We are an enabler. We provide investment to create an environment to enable the teams we work with to succeed. We take a long-term view and look to build stable, profitable businesses. We can realise our investment via an exit event but equally we are happy to back market leading companies for the long-term.

The way to get started is to quit talking and start doing.
