c2Ventures sole focus is the raising of funds for high growth companies. Its experienced entrepreneurial management team offers a connected network of over 600 UK and European based high net worth individuals, family offices, VCTS, government and institutional funds; grant and finance sources and serial entrepreneurs and investors; all of whom recognise a good management team and high potential business when they see it.

We are different in that we often invest as principals alongside other funders. Portfolio companies receiving investment in 2006/7 included Moixa, Sascal, Urban Healing and Le55ons group.

Friendly and direct, you will find the team challenging both as investors in our own right and because of our focus in providing our investors and institutional funds with the best commercial opportunities possible. Members of the management team sit on the advisory board of the European Technology Forum, Advise Shell Livewire, work with VCs such as Doughty Hanson as interim Financial Directors and sit on the mentoring panels for some of the UK’s top technology universities.

The management are well versed in early stage finance, having worked within institutional funds, large public corporations and start-ups, winning industry recognition and awards in the latter category as well as recognition from the BBAA annual awards the past two years for our intermediary work.

With a preference for brand, technology, business services and media we seek well rounded companies with clear strategy and ability to execute and who are searching for smart money and input. Last year we worked with 3 companies to optimise their chances of receiving funding. Each did. Adding to our commercial experience the c2 principals and advisory board are all MBA, ACCA or Securities Institute qualified.

The company’s core strength is practical, pragmatic and effective advice in pre-funding situations working with management to ensure their funding aims are met. The c2Ventures website also offers one of the industry’s most comprehensive free resource libraries including the ground breaking Investor Pulse report into Angel investing, authored by the principals, make sure you read it before you contact us!
