Believe In Ideas
Raising finance can be difficult, but we want to make the process as simple as possible. You don’t have to wait for an introduction to get in touch - around 60% of our investments come from direct enquiries. So whether you’re the founder of an exciting new venture, or are looking to grow your existing business, we want to hear from you.
Our team of experienced investors works hard to support entrepreneurs in building successful companies, across all stages of business. We bring with us commercial and operational experience, PhDs and MBAs, international careers and even a micro-business or two.
At Northstar we understand the many challenges involved in setting up and growing a business - especially when you are trying to shake up your industry. That's why we see our role, as an investor, as being about so much more than money. When we invest, we are beginning a partnership that we hope will last for years.
To us, support means more than just financial backing: we help our portfolio to overcome challenges, to recruit the best staff, to build memorable brands and to make the right connections. Even if we can't invest in a company, we see our role as offering the vital support that enables the business to develop and become 'investment ready'.
Through the Foundation's work we hope to benefit excluded and deprived communities across the region.Find out more
