Entrepreneurial founded fund?

Fuel Ventures is one of the most active pre-Seed & seed venture capital funds in the UK, established by Mark Pearson as a result of his own entrepreneurial and investment successes. Mark built and exited his successful digital marketplace business between 2006 and sold in 2014 for £44m and has since established a portfolio of over 60 companies, some of the most exciting early and growth-stage tech companies in the UK.

The Fuel Ventures team, investor and advisor network provides a unique 'all under one roof' approach based on real-world experience which minimises the level of risk for the fuel companies, delivering a combination of mentorship, experience and access to the investment required to accelerate their revenue growth through strategic advice and practical business-planning and operational execution support.

We like super ambitious hard-working founders or founding teams, companies that have large global scale growth potential with multibillion market opportunities.

We really want to see companies that have the potential to deliver x100 potential growth, mostly meaning £1billion+ future market cap potential.

Our Funds:

  • Concept/Early Stage SEIS Fund🌱 30 investments of £150k
  • Scale-up/Growth EIS Fund 📈 15-20 investments of £1-£3m
