Investing in companies
and the people building them

We care about and support founders as people — not just CEOs or business leaders.
Because building a successful company requires more than performance at work.

Alex Kendall
Co-founder and CEO, Wayve
“Building a deep tech company means having to get thousands of decisions right, day after day, to drive compounding value. I’ve found being deliberate about your well-being is one of the greatest forms of leverage you can have for this as a leader.”
Matt Cooper
CEO of Crowdcube
“It’s clear this programme is going to have a meaningful impact on how I live my life, manage stress and conflict and have a happy and harmonious family home. All of that makes me a better leader which should lead to better outcomes for shareholders.”
Rachel Delacour
Cofounder and CEO of Sweep
“Building a tech startup is a marathon. Every founder should have a safe space – ‘a basecamp’ where they feel well and can bounce back. This is paramount to keep going and face all the ups and downs of the journey.”
