Big businesses no longer have the resources to innovate alone. We work with start-ups and corporates to transform their innovation processes, developing new products and services to drive growth.
Businesses need to keep up with the pace of change but find it increasingly difficult to do it all.
We help organisations like Diageo, PepsiCo and the Cabinet Office change the way they innovate by creating proven partnerships between corporates and entrepreneurs.
We specialise in building and running accelerator programmes to support the creation of consumer-facing brands.
Highlights of our venturing experience include the creation of Distill Ventures, the world’s first spirits accelerator. Now in its third year of operation, it has seen over £35m of investment committed to entrepreneurs across Europe, Asia and North America.
We invest our own money into early stage start-ups who we see ‘making revolutions happen’ in their own sectors, and also provide mentorship and consulting services.
Recent investments include Osper, a pre-paid debit card teaching children how to manage their money; Fy, a mobile-first jewellery retailer; and Dressipi, a technology company personalising how fashion brands sell clothes.
