Acuity Advisors’ Venture Advisory

Acuity Advisors’ Venture Practice arranges finance for early and mid-stage European technology businesses.

We have over a decade of experience and an impressive track record to match. Having raised finance from many of the world’s renowned VCs, we have helped Europe’s most exciting businesses fuel their growth plans. We frequently develop multi-year, multi-round relationships with our clients. And, in addition, we have a number of strategic relationships with VCs where we provide funding advice across their entire portfolio.

Knowing investors is our job – not just the obvious ones – we specialise in accessing less well known sources of funding across the globe. We have developed deep and long lasting relationships with funders who are always willing to take our call. We work closely with our M&A team and we have cultivated a network of corporate investors who often join together with more traditional sources of funding to provide a best of both worlds syndicate. In fact, several of our team have worked within the corporate venturing divisions of technology firms.

Our DNA is selling technology businesses and we bring this expertise into all our venture fund raising activities. We know what investors require and we help curate well written and compelling documentation that paints our clients in the best possible light.

While we acknowledge raising venture finance is rarely easy, our experience, approach and relationship maximises the chances of success.
