Our values

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Openness

For many students and start-up founders, venture capital is a mysterious, complex, and inaccessible industry. We’re here to demystify it.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Diversity

VCs define the future through their investments, changing how we socialise, bank, travel, access healthcare, and more. Yet, it is one of the least diverse industries. Women constitute only 30% of VC personnel in the UK and ethnic diversity is low. We want to change that.

Support

We’re here to support students who wouldn’t usually have the opportunity or the confidence to enter the world of early-stage start-ups and investing.
