Edward Keelan

Edward focuses on investments into B2B software companies that are fully commercialised and at the scaleup phase in their growth.

“We focus on companies that are at a pivotal stage of their growth journeys – often looking to expand their sales operations or move to new geographies. These companies already have proven product market fit and stable revenue base and now require capital to expand. As a business geek I love to get under the skin of the company and look at what the data is telling us as well as the wider market opportunity.”

Edward has worked at Octopus for well over a decade investing in a wide range of sectors. Previously, he was in the founding team of a successful consulting business that was spun out of Rolls-Royce where he started his career. He is part of the Oxford University oNetwork as an Entrepreneurial Expert and mentors startups as part of the Oxford University Liber Project.

Edward holds an Executive MBA with distinction from SAID Business School, Oxford University. Outside of work he enjoys playing sport and keeping fit, although most of his extra time is spent chasing after his three young children!
