Episode1 Ventures is an entrepreneurial venture capital firm based in London, focused on finding, funding and supporting exceptional founding teams at seed stage.
Our partners have decades of experience as entrepreneurs and investors in some of Europe‚Äö√Ñ√¥s most successful start-ups, like CarWow, Zoopla, Betfair and Shazam. Investing at seed-stage, we dedicate this expertise to our founders to accelerate their growth and help secure a great Series A, sooner.
In order to do this (and really, nothing feels better than seeing businesses you work with achieve hyper-success) we have a team of not only experienced Investment Partners, but also dedicated experts in areas like People Strategy & Culture, as well as Go To Market Strategy - check out the team here.
We have a current portfolio of 21 businesses and have just raised a ¬¨¬£60m second fund so we are now investing into a second portfolio of 25-30 early stage UK companies.
The team at Episode 1 work in a collegiate, autonomous and truth-seeking culture where the most important thing is finding and supporting our investee companies to succeed.
