Adventure Into the Unknown

CREATE A MULTIMILLION POUND VENTURE

We are cheesed off seeing awesome businesses being devoured as soon as they start to grow.

Our mission is to develop multimillion pound ventures by protecting business builders from themselves, scary shit, and assholes.

We don’t charge upfront and we won’t walk away after your first round of funding. We’re with you for the long haul, guiding you at all three stages of early business growth:

We exit when you exit. No short-termism. No BS.

BUILDING BUSINESSES FOR THE REAL WORLD

One size doesn’t fit all, heck, it doesn’t fit anyone! That’s why we don’t conform to a programme syllabus or set of modules. This isn’t high school, this is real life.

We come to you. We get to know your business and we custom build a programme that works. Our team comprises experts in finance, marketing, operations, investment and business leadership.

This is not “assembly line” start-up manufacturing. We hand pick founders we believe can build fantastic, sustainable businesses.
