About

We’re here to answer questions

We like to back entrepreneurs from the start and have the ability to follow up from a few hundred thousand right up to £25million. We are headquartered in London but also have people in the U.S. and Asia specifically placed to help the teams we back scale in those markets.

About Octopus Ventures

We are a team that backs entrepreneurs. We like to be in early and follow through from one defining moment to the next. We aim to be helpful and straightforward and we value boldness – qualities we seek in our entrepreneurs and partners. Our average investment is £4.5m and in recent years it has ranged from £350k to £25m.

We support, we don’t micro-manage. We’re able to expose entrepreneurs to the people, the organisations and the networks which will illuminate their ambition and broaden their horizon. Direct access to powerful resources of influence and hard-won knowhow have fuelled each of our portfolio’s successes.

We are part of Octopus Group, managing over £7 billion on behalf of more than 50,000 investors, spanning investments, healthcare, energy and property.

About Octopus Group

Most companies don’t put their customers first. And when it comes to the things that matter most to us in life, like financial security, health and wellbeing, that’s a big problem.

We set up Octopus back in 2000 to change this. We set out to build businesses where our customers would feel so strongly about what we did, and how we did it, that they would proactively recommend us to those they were closest to.

So far our approach is working. We’re changing the way people think about their savings, we’re building care homes, hospitals and schools you’d be proud to send your loved ones to, and we’re supplying hundreds of thousands of UK homes with renewable energy.

And there’s much more to come. We call it ‘a brighter way’.
