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 typical investment in recent years has been £1m for Seed and £4m for Series A.
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 £7.5 billion on behalf of more than 50,000 investors, spanning investments, healthcare, energy and property.
