SuperSeed is an early-stage venture fund that supports founders in building the next generation of global technology champions. Founded by experienced startup entrepreneurs who have already achieved multiple successes, securing eight exits personally, four by investment and four by entrepreneurship. The SuperSeed team uses the expertise gained from decades of building and operating B2B tech companies to support ambitious founders in creating world-class technology companies.
- Invest alongside managers who have built, backed, scaled and sold. 8 exits across the team.
- Diversification from 32 companies
- Reserve capital – 40% of the fund held back for best performers
- Gearing companies up for global market fit, category domination and transformative impact.
- Compressing the timeline for the first million, the major milestones and Series A.
- Taking the next step into a world where people are free from menial work to create meaningful value.
The fund invests in technical founders, solving real-word problems with unreal ambitions.
They select companies at the early-stage when valuations are more attractive.
Proving product-market fit, often actually selling a company's technology before investing.
SuperSeed focusses on B2B SaaS and deep technology businesses with global potential.
The fund looks to build a diversified portfolio of 32 companies and retain approximately 40% of the fund's capital for follow-on investments.
The fund aims to back the best technical founders and support them with developing their commercial model to accelerate their journey from Seed to Series A.
SuperSeed aims to support and scale investee companies to generate £10's of millions in annual recurring revenue. SuperSeed uses their deep industry contacts to showcase investee companies to global customers and potential acquirers regularly to increase their acquisition likelihood. SuperSeed anticipates the most likely exit route is through trade sales, although SuperSeed consider all options closely. Initial Public Offering (IPO) will often see the most lucrative returns for the investors, although this is dependent on the market sentiment and economy at that time.
SuperSeed believes the best way to secure the right exit is to build a highly scalable and cash-generating business; this should bring exit times closer for investee companies. SuperSeed cannot prescribe the timing of an exit at the point of investment. However, it is expected that they will hold investments between 5 to 8 years from the date the first investment is made (although some may be shorter or longer, and some investments may not exit at all).
At the appropriate time and if exit opportunities for investments are available, SuperSeed will, on a discretionary basis, evaluate whether an exit opportunity is likely to deliver the highest risk-adjusted return for Investors.

Investing in early-stage companies should be considered high risk, and investors should only invest in the fund what they are prepared to lose without impacting their lifestyle and retirement plans. This fund is only suitable for (elective) professional clients.
Investors may not receive back the total amount that they have invested in the fund. The value of each investment made by the Fund may fall, and there is no guarantee that an investment may not lose all of its value. All investors' capital is at risk. Accordingly, you should not invest in this product unless you have carefully thought about whether you can afford it and whether it is right for you, having had the opportunity to take independent advice.
Valuation of unquoted companies is inherently tricky as their shares are not publicly traded or freely marketable, and relevant information is not always available to accurately determine a value.

A 3% lifetime administration and custody fee for the nominee structure is charged upfront for investors accessing the fund via the CoInvestor aggregator.
