A List of London's Startup Investors

Looking at the search keywords that have led people to my last blog post on London’s startup investors, quite a few who find the page seem to be searching for a list of investors rather than an analysis of their interests. Since a few lists that I’ve found aren’t very recent or mix the stages of investors, I decided to start working on a list of London’s startup investors.

Most of the startups I meet are at the very early stages, looking for angels and seed investors, so I decided to limit this list initially to venture capital funds investing at the seed stage. While there is no fixed definition of ‘seed’, I’m mainly including funds are able to invest between $100k and $500k in a technology startup with a product but little traction, typically just after an angel investment or an accelerator. (n.b. just because they are able to, does not mean that this is their focus or they do so often.)

Here I list only venture capital funds actively seed investing in early-stage startups that have a full-time presence in London. This is in no way exhaustive, with new funds being created every month, and doesn’t include funds outside of London who invest here. Please feel free to send me any corrections or additions.

This list is given without comment, you should do just as much due dilligence on your investors as they do on you. Before reaching out to any, please read up on the best practices of how to reach out to investors. Most of these funds will have email addresses for business plan submissions, which will be monitored, but this is rarely the best way to reach them.
