The SidebySide Partnership

The SidebySide Partnership

About

The SidebySide Partnership invests in and mentors businesses that are already generating millions in revenue. Our fund is run by a management team responsible for over $1.5bn in exits, to date.


We invest in fast-growing technology-enabled businesses with £1-10 million in revenue. These more established companies will usually be at least several years old and typically have over 20 employees. We look for companies where there is evidence of a strong customer acceptance of the product and service offered, and where we believe we can add substantively to the knowledge and experience of the management team as the company grows.

""Although we score third globally in a ranking of the number of startups created, we don’t make it into the top ten when it comes to businesses that grow into established, medium-sized companies that have a lasting impact on our economy” This is our focus and why we formed the SidebySide Partnership."
