The Right Investment

Our programmes and relationships significantly de-risk the unknown variables in investing in early stage tech businesses.

We believe that finding the right kind of investment both for the investor and the investee involves more than simply assessing technologies and value propositions. Every business is a people business, so we like to start there. The right chemistry and values are as important as the right business model.

UP has an outstanding record for getting businesses investment ready and securing smart finance from investors who bring more than money.

Some of the attributes we look for

  • An energetic team who play the long game
  • Scalable technologies with a clear sector focus
  • Demonstrable market pull
  • A commitment to diversity, equality and inclusion
  • Talent that can drive and adapt to inevitable market disruption
