Start-up Testimonials

"Veridian Ventures have been a great support to our business, joining us early in our first round of investment. Marwan and Dan are extremely knowledgeable, positive and keen to help in providing valuable advice and introductions. Veridian are a pleasure to work with."

James Harrabin, CEO, Travlet

"The support from Veridian is excellent. I know I can call on Dan and Marwan whenever I need a sense-check on any decision I need to make.  I have also received help from other start-ups and professionals introduced by Veridian – the issues I encounter have been solved by someone else who is happy to share.  Overall I have found Veridian pragmatic, diligent, well informed and always available."

Gregor Hoefter, CEO, GridDuck

"Dan and Marwan are great investors, the first ones to offer help and provide inputs whenever they think they can add value. Hands-on but at the same time humble, Veridian Ventures is the one-of-a-kind investor every startup should aspire to!"

Michele Grosso, CEO, Democrance

"Since the Veridian network invested in Torsion a year ago, Dan and the team have become incredibly valuable partners for us. They’ve facilitated key customer and partner engagements for us in markets we would have otherwise struggled to access, and they’re constantly contributed helpful advice and introductions from their network. We’re very pleased to have the guys from Veridian onboard."

Peter Bradley, CEO, Torsion Information Security

“The veridian ventures team are what you want as a founder - helpful when you need them, hands-off when you don't. They have a strong network of investors and are a great partner for any early stage company looking to raise their first round.”

Alex Smilansky, Co-Founder & CEO, Mayku

“Veridian invested in Moteefe in early 2017 after a thorough round of due diligence to ensure they really understand our business and its growth potential. Ever since it has been a pleasure to work with the team. They have actively opened new commercial opportunities for Moteefe and are always available to discuss, and help solve, some of the growth-related challenges I face as a founder on a mission to grow and scale the business.”



Mathijs Eefting, Founder & CEO, Moteefe

“We are very grateful having the Veridian syndicate as part of our investor group. From a founder’s perspective it was a real pleasure to engage with the Veridian team because their investment approach was both thorough as well as efficient. From Day 1 they had a clear lead on their due diligence efforts, were transparent about their focus areas and processed all our information efficiently. I also felt they had a good understanding of what to expect from the type of ventures they were looking at. Since the investment, I have been deeply impressed by their pro-active support in terms of potential strategic partners, additional investors and even potential talent – all this with the right amount of distance to enable USIO to make its own decisions.”

Vincent Tuk, Founder, USIO energy

"It was a pleasure to work with Marwan and the team during the funding process. Their critical due dillignce helped us very much to think more deeply about our future plans and our business, which was very beneficial to us."

Victor Trokoudes, Founder & CEO, Plum

“Veridian joined as an investor for our second seed round at the end of 2017. All of our interactions both before and after the raise were very professional; they were careful in their due diligence but also quick to process information and to get to a decision. As a founder I appreciated their challenges and investigative questioning, and ultimately this helped us be more prepared in our discussions with other investors. Having spent time talking to many investors and potential investors over the course of 2017, Veridian were one of the best in terms of the ratio of effort to benefit for the business.”

Andrew Mack, Founder, 4hundred GmbH

“The Veridian team have been fantastic in their support over multiple rounds of funding. They have great knowledge across their team and always respond with constructive feedback that has been very valuable over our journey.”

Nikki Th’ng, CEO, Class4Kids

“Veridian has been an immensely helpful partner to Hummingbird since its investment several years ago, principally by way of making helpful introductions, or through articulate advice on our scale up and route to market”

Will Wells, CEO, Hummingbird Technologies
