Q & A with Ian Warwick

6th February 2019

How do you find appropriate technology companies to invest in?
The Deepbridge team has decades of combined experience of working in and around the technology sector, both in the UK and internationally.  We therefore have strong networks which tend to refer investee opportunities to us and therefore we tend not to have to chase deals.  Having grown a reputation for providing smart capital to early-stage tech companies enables us to attract quality tech companies seeking growth funding.

 

How does Deepbridge monitor EIS investee companies?

10th January 2019

Growing companies require expert guidance and mentoring as well as adequate funding to stay focused on their strategies, exploit new opportunities and prepare for the next stage of development or exit. Investments will only be made in companies where Deepbridge either engages with or has vetted experienced professionals to work with the management team. Deepbridge will take board positions in all investee companies and takes an “active role” to guide, mentor and counsel the management team.
