The Bramden team have started businesses from nothing and built those businesses into global, market-leading enterprises able to attract institutional investment.
Our private funding allows us to be very selective in our investment strategy. We are not silent investors and we do not expect a percentage of our portfolio to fail.
We invest capital, infrastructure and expertise into every business we support.
We will share the difficult decisions and ultimately find and seize the opportunities that will result in shareholder value enhancement.
We have a long-term focus and the ability to support our ventures from start up to exit
We partner with ambitious, hard-working entrepreneurs who are passionate about building their business.
Those founders make sacrifices, speak frankly and fight for the ventures that they believe in. If you do that, then we will as well.
And anyway, if you want to change the world, that is the minimum required.
We have a depth of experience in finance, technology and big data and so are naturally drawn to ventures in one or a combination of those fields.
Because we make few investments, we can invest significant capital into each venture. Previously we have invested in excess of £20m into individual ventures that we have supported.
We are hands-on with all of our investments.
We are early stage investors which means we prefer to fund at or between seed and Series A. We need to be the first and/or largest, venture investor.
We have a long-term focus and have the ability to support our ventures from start-up to exit.
We are based in the Isle of Man so UK-headquartered ventures are our focus.
However, we have investments across the world including UK, US, Australia, Europe and the Caribbean.
Building a business is hard work but incredibly rewarding. We’ve been there, done it and now we are addicted.
We have made founders into millionaires, but our motivation comes from taking a business from little more than an idea to a globally recognised leader in its industry.
We love the journey and not knowing exactly where it will take us and because we are investing our own money, time and expertise, every investment is personal.
To properly appraise an investment, we ask to see at least a pitch deck, historical and forecast financials and a clear plan for value progression within 6 – 12 months.
Pitches that clearly demonstrate a combination of passion, vision and detail around how the business will succeed will capture our attention.
If we think we can add value, we will look to invest quickly and deploy our own significant resource to support the business case.
The founders we support make sacrifices, speak frankly and fight for the ventures that they believe in.
If you do that, then we will as well.
