Velocity Capital Advisors Limited is the Investment Consultant to the Velocity SEIS and EIS Funds, managed by Sapphire Capital Partners LLP. The Velocity funds focus on technology enabled companies and to date have invested in over 40 companies. It is our view that the digital economy has given innovative start-ups the ability to disrupt the way well-established industries operate, undermining entrenched businesses rapidly with devastating effect. It is a time of opportunity for innovative thinkers with products and ideas to challenge the way traditional businesses operate.
Velocity looks to provide its investee companies with a unfair advantage beyond the provision of pure funding. We are active, not passive investors bringing to bear our own experience as entrepreneurs, financiers, marketeers on the businesses we support, but also additional services provided through our extensive networks including alliance partnerships, accounts, legal, consumer research, brand strategy, co-funding and grants.
We look to invest in start up businesses ranging from ideas on a piece of paper to going concerns. Through milestone driven active management, we look to take these businesses to Series A, at which point we will seek to obtain partial exits.
