Innovative tech. Impressive entrepreneurs. Global potential.
We look for high-growth companies with strong IP, powerful technology, and the management team equivalent of jet fuel. They operate in new markets, with serious potential for global expansion. We also look for strong margins to ensure sustainable growth, particularly for companies on a journey to profitability
High-growth. Efficient models. Attractive exit.
We offer all investors access to private companies, in the high growth phase. Entrepreneurs come to us once they’ve initially proven their idea, and are ready to grow. We’re providing a rare opportunity to invest in companies that will will be attractive candidates for acquisition or IPO, with valuations from $50m to $1bn and beyond.
Our companies use technology to create better ways of doing things. We focus on four sectors.
New consumer facing products, innovative business models, and proven execution capabilities that bring exceptional growth opportunities.
The software infrastructure, applications and services that make enterprises more productive, cost-efficient and smoother to run.
The deeper technologies that will spark advances in computing, consumer electronics and other industries.
Using digital and genomic technologies to create new products and services for the health and wellness markets.
Draper Esprit provided strategic guidance and hands-on support for scaling the team, fast.

Designed to help our companies grow
Over 2,500 businesses a year approach us for investment. This is complimented by thousands more who we meet through our secondary and fund of funds strategy. This helps us find the brightest opportunities, and the clearest visions.
We make 10-20 new investments a year, including follow-on, bringing the most ambitious tech companies into our portfolio.
We put cash in for rapid scale-ups, to help bring a team’s vision to life. We make introductions, and fuel global ambitions.
We’re not confined to five-year cycles. Whether to a strategic buyer or as an IPO, companies exit when they reach maturity or when they have established a strategic position in their ecosystem.
