These are strange times, unpredictable times, and, tragically, sad times. We are being forced to find new ways to work and indeed live, but necessity continues to be the mother of all invention, and this time will be no different.
Some of our best investments were businesses forged in times of stress, and with 35 years of investing under our belt, we are here for the long run, with our eye on the decade to come, not only the coming months. Whether finding new ways to socialize or more efficient ways of working, creating new methods of access for products we never knew we needed, and developing rapid and radical responses to healthcare crises, many innovations will stick.
We are very much open for business and hungry for new investments (and with no commute time, there are plenty more hours in the day!).
This is also a time where our relationship with our existing investee companies is vital. We will endeavour to be practical, act fast, work with empathy and compassion, and share best practices. There will be difficult decisions for CEOs to make, and we will do our best to provide support and guidance where we have expertise.×
