Our objective is to enable our investors to build a diverse portfolio of winning start-up investments in order to achieve exceptional returns. We are an experienced investment team with the network, skills and knowledge to source, screen, evaluate, and select superior opportunities. At Veridian, we dive deep into the detail to obtain a thorough understanding of each business’s underlying success factors and risks.

An investment opportunity is only introduced to our Members once it has passed through this rigourous selection process and we, the Veridian Partners, have decided to invest our own money into the business. Once the investment has been concluded we commit to continually challenge and support the team on their growth journey.
