The Veridian partners work to identify businesses that address large and growing markets and where the business can demonstrate a clear competitive advantage.
We look for businesses that meet the following criteria:
Prefer equity investments but will consider equity-like instruments as long as they are structured advantageously for our investors.
Investments generally range from £50K to £200k per deal, but we never fund more than 65% of any given round.
Agnostic, we pursue the best scalable opportunities with strong value growth potential across all sectors – using the collective expertise of our partners and network to evaluate opportunities.
Whilst we are open to investing in all stages of development, we prefer to invest in early-stage businesses where our knowledge and network can add the greatest value.
A minimum holding period of 3 years to meet EIS requirements. Given the early-stage of the businesses the expected average holding period is ~5 years.
Aim for a cash on cash multiple of >4x within 5 years, for an IRR >30%.
