Experience

Strategic mutuality provides their partner entrepreneurs with access to our deep international network to accelerate business development and recruitment. As a pragmatic management team they have plenty of useful experience navigating often complex corporate issues, structuring transactions and implementing strategic change.

How much do they invest?

They classify our target investment stage as “post product” and they tend not to invest at seed level – a target company should show early strengths with a proven product and business model operating in a sizeable market.

This makes a difference to them

Over their collective investment lives they have strategically shifted portfolio focus a number of times, though one factor remains universally important - people. They work with entrepreneurs that work with them as partners, who are open and upfront, who are there for the long term and don’t over-promise. They firmly believe it is not always the smartest who win but those that persevere.

Startups they funded

Billetto, Neteven, Pockit, PayasUgym, Prettysocial Media, Airsorted, Hckletree, Hypaship

How to approach them

They’re keen to meet ambitious new founders to discuss opportunities, though their business attracts a variety of proposal types and calibres. So to get their undivided attention, your best bet is via an introduction from a shared connection.

However, “Drop a note” here provides a short form and the facility to upload supporting material if you do want to send  them a heads-up. Please bear in mind though, they’re a small team and agile as we are, our primary responsibilities lie with existing entrepreneurs and investor partners.
