Seeking investment

We pride ourselves on working in partnership with our investee companies, taking a seat on the board and providing advice on a strategic level when required, with the ultimate aim to realise the full potential of the business and its management.

We look to invest between £0.5 million to £10 million in a wide range of growing businesses, from technology oriented companies, to service and asset-based businesses. Our larger investments tend to be more asset backed, such as care homes and hotels, while at the smaller end of the funding scale, we look at a variety of growth businesses, including second or third round technology propositions, pharmaceutical opportunities or environmental projects. Finally in the middle ground of between £2 million and £5 million our focus is mainstream growth capital.

The Albion Ventures team of investors have a diverse range of professional backgrounds and between them have many years of investing and helping businesses create value. To date we have invested in over 90 companies.
