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

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.
