Leading UK Investors Back the Future of Venture Investing
November 4, 2013
A number of the UK’s leading early stage investors have come together to back a new online platform that is set to transform venture investing in the UK. Launching today, JustInvesting is the UK’s first private equity exchange focusing on early-stage ventures.
The management team have announced £750,000 ($1.2 million) in seed funding by some of the UK’s most prominent investors including Robin Klein of The Accelerator Group and Index Ventures, Edward Wray, co-founder of Betfair, and a number of senior finance industry executives. JustInvesting is also backed by the £100m Angel CoFund, a Government supported fund investing in high growth early stage venture across the UK.
JustInvesting will enable professional investors to consolidate all aspects of the investment process into a single platform and provide online investor tools to support the entire investment life cycle: from discovery, investment, management, to exit. The platform will, at the same time, make it easier for companies to find access to growth capital. The website is available at www.JustInvesting.com.
