Symvan Capital Limited

Symvan Capital

Manager Overview

Symvan Capital is an award-winning technology venture capital firm investing in companies that seek to have a material impact in their industry with the potential to deliver exceptional investment returns within a realistic time frame.

Symvan provides investors the opportunity to access today’s most exciting early stage tech companies that aim to become tomorrow’s most exciting growth companies.

Symvan’s team is based in London but has a global reach through both its advisers and investments in companies operating across Europe and North America.  Portfolio companies address problems and opportunities that are global in nature, so national borders mean very little to us as investors.  Symvan seeks to offer investors access to dynamic companies from start-up to scale-up stage, which can also be described as investing from ‘seed’ stage to ‘Series A’ stage.  This accords with Symvan’s Life Cycle Approach whereby we aim to seed a company, and then introduce them to third-party angel investors, before making further ‘scale-up’ investments to get them onto a significant growth path.  Although high return investing also involves high risks, the Symvan Select due diligence process has been very effective thus far in minimising the risk of failures.

The UK has never had a problem with innovation, punching well above its weight in terms of inventions and university research.  However, it is also the country that invented both the computer and the world wide web but didn’t commercialise either of them.  Symvan seeks to help do its bit to address this imbalance, through investing and nurturing companies that have not been well served by either the tax-efficient market or by the traditional venture capital industry.  Symvan invests in the best companies at an early stage followed by active mentoring and follow-on funding whilst empowering and guiding the best entrepreneurs.  The final product aim is remarkable growth and high exit values within an actively risk-managed environment, leading to outstanding investor returns.  And all of this is provided in an environment characterised by transparency and authenticity.

At present Symvan’s funds appeal to both sophisticated and high net worth individuals, and those in the wealth management community who seek to invest in businesses for more than just tax breaks and actively seek exceptional performance.
