financial rewards for our partners and ourselves

  • alignment: we’ve learnt the importance of aligning the interests of founders, investors, management and prospective partners. In our experience, an aligned interest in our companies helps all parties maintain their motivation even in difficult times
  • experience: as founders, inventors, directors, investors and management we’ve worked together for over 10 years and experienced much success and at times failure. Our collective experience of building high-growth companies has enabled us to create an ecosystem of global scientific and managerial talent, academic and corporate contacts, and diverse sources of capital for different stages of company building. All of which facilitates the growth of our businesses and assists in mitigating many of the risks inherent in building and growing disruptive technology companies
  • capital efficiency: as serial founders of companies, we find ourselves at ease working with executives and investors that ascribe value to efficiency. We aim to build capital efficient companies that maximise profit for all shareholders
  • risk taking: high growth plans bear high risks, which we understand and cherish. We prefer technology risk to market risk and work towards building cogent plans for prioritising & removing these risks for the least amount of money
  • energy: we bring an enthusiastic disposition, energy & ‘can do’ approach – invaluable intangible assets for growing exciting young companies with bold ambitions

Cool facts about our office: Notable scientists have worked at the Institution including Sir Humphry Davy (discovered sodium and potassium) , Michael Faraday (first demonstrated electromagnetism) , James Dewar, Sir William Henry Bragg and Sir William Lawrence Bragg (who jointly won the Nobel prize for their work on x-ray diffraction), Max Perutz, John Kendrew, Antony Hewish, and George Porter. In the 19th century, Faraday carried out much of the research which laid the groundwork for the practical exploitation of electricity at the Royal Institution. In total fifteen scientists attached to the Royal Institution have won Nobel Prizes. Ten chemical elements including sodium were discovered there; the electric generator was devised at the Institution, and much of the early work on the atomic structure of crystals was carried out within it.
