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 organizations and the networks which will illuminate their ambition and broaden their horizon. Direct access to powerful resources of influence and hard-won know-how have fueled 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.

We are one of Europe’s largest Venture Capital teams.

Head-quartered in London and New York, with Venture Partners in San Francisco, Singapore and China, we help entrepreneurs scale globally.
