Octopus Development Capital

Accelerating the growth of proven businesses

We provide funding to help businesses move to the next stage in their development, whether through domestic or international growth

Our flexible funding (typically £2-10m) comes from one of the UK’s largest Venture Capital Trusts.

What we look for

We invest in companies of all types, although we prefer B2B software. We focus on businesses that have:

• Contracted and recurring revenue

• Strong management teams

Take a look at the investments in our portfolio for some examples of where we’ve invested.

How we can help

As part of Octopus Investments we have the ability to provide much more than just funding:

• Strategic support and planning

• Links to professional advisers

• Follow-on investment when needed

• Future exit planning

The way we invest

We understand how hard entrepreneurs work to build their businesses and therefore we look to create deal structures that minimise equity dilution.
