VentureFounders is a UK-based equity investment platform designed to make Angel and Venture Capital style investing more accessible, affordable and transparent. We interviewed VentureFounders earlier this year to gain some insights into their operating model.

VentureFounders was established with the aim of bringing a curated offering of venture capital and angel style investments to investors in an efficient and cost-effective way. We launched in 2014 to offer a more bespoke and professional service, both to businesses looking for finance through crowdfunding, and to investors wanting to diversify their investment portfolio.

The team’s extensive experience in corporate finance, private equity, deal structuring and start-ups means we are well placed to identify the businesses that meet our criteria i.e. those with potential for growth and profit, a sustainable competitive advantage, a clear path to commercialisation, a strong management team and viable monetisation options. Our team is complemented by a Senior Advisor panel of industry leading experts and entrepreneurs including Justin Urquhart Stewart, Founder of Seven Investment Management and Martin McCourt the ex CEO of Dyson.

VentureFounders is much more than a crowdfunding platform. We offer long-term advisory services and partnership to the businesses seeking funding and provide access to a curated range of well-structured early stage and growth capital opportunities for investors. We screen all of the investment opportunities on our platform, conducting detailed due diligence before presenting to our investor base. All of this vital information is presented on our website for investors to see.

VentureFounders is aimed at growing businesses that have already demonstrated early signs of strong potential. The company must be UK-based and in terms of deal size, looking to raise between £250,000 and £2 million. We are open to any industry sectors. Typically between one and three years old, they will be up and running with a strong management team in place and a detailed business plan. The businesses that VentureFounders works with tend to value the in-depth support and guidance throughout the fundraise process as well as access to a mix of supportive investors and senior advisors who can open doors and introduce valuable networks.
