True Global Innovation
Vision, Execution, Capital
At Izy Capital, we encourage our portfolio companies to think big. Constrained only by the boundaries of effective execution, people who think big can deliver big. Small thinkers will miss small. Big thinkers have a chance, but will need guidance, support and capital. That’s what we do. As Founders ourselves we recognise that it takes a lot more than a blueprint to succeed. Unshakeable self-belief moderated by the ability to listen, execute and respond to changes in the market dynamics are at least as important as total addressable market or technological advantage. Why? Because competitive advantage can get diversified away. Economics 101. We expect vision. In return, we provide an ecosystem to ensure best practice execution and funding.
Izy can provide Seed Capital through direct investment up to £150,000. We typically tend to bring about 10 portfolio companies in during the year. In order to be considered we ask that all companies follow the application process on the site. We will shortly not be considering any direct mail applications. With our syndicate partners we then have the ability to fund up to £10m in follow on growth equity capital and up to £50m through debt and equity capital structures.
