Octopus Ventures

For the people and ideas that will change the world. Octopus Ventures back companies at every stage of their journey, from ideas on a page through to IPO. Each year they deploy more than £200 million across five areas where they see maximum potential for impact: health, fintech, deep tech, consumer and B2B software. With many years of experience and expertise investing in each of these areas, Octopus Ventures help their clients' portfolio companies scale at speed.
Investment is about more than money. Being truly invested is about giving time, energy and focus; working with founders to give them the best chance of success. It means a shared commitment to solving the big problems that matter.
Octopus Ventures have invested in the likes of BoughtByMany, Cazoo, Depop, Elvie and WaveOptics, while others have gone on to join forces with the world’s largest businesses.
They are based in London and New York with a network of partners across the U.S and Asia.
