Why these companies?
We’ve invested in so many great teams across a range of industries from fin-tech to SaaS to IoT security, and from data APIs to virtual reality. While we are broad in our remit — we back ambitious teams solving genuine problems that enhance the way we live and work.
We’re looking to back the companies that will be at the front of this, either directly or by enabling it to happen by building the infrastructure, networks or tools to make it work. Below are the companies that have publicly announced their investment rounds.
