At Octopus Ventures we look for pioneering entrepreneurs trying to change the world. We back unusually talented teams intent on building businesses that can scale explosively to create, transform or dominate an industry. In recent years we have been fortunate to back the founding teams of over 60 companies across Europe including Zoopla Property Group, Big Health, Secret Escapes, SwiftKey and graze.com.
As one of the largest venture capital firms in Europe, we can invest from £250,000 to £25 million in a first round of funding and will look to follow in subsequent rounds. We are proud to be known as one of the most entrepreneur-friendly investors in Europe and a significant part of our portfolio consists of referrals from existing teams we work with or serial entrepreneurs whom we have previously backed.
