Investment Criteria

Cambridge Capital Group is a business angel network comprised of private investors, family offices, and venture funds that have been investing in technology startups across the Golden Triangle since 2001. We screen opportunities between the seed and series A stage, raising from £150,000 to £2m in S/EIS eligible equity financing.

Our members actively invest in a wide range of opportunities across all technology sectors. The geographic focus is on startups based in the UK where we seek disruptive technologies that are highly defensible and offer unique advantages to their marketplace.

"The CCG management team really took the time to get to know us (the founders) and our business before inviting us to participate in one of their prestigious pitch events. I appreciate that this pre-screening allows CCG to only accept companies which match the high quality standards and interests of their discerning membership." (2018 portfolio company founder)

Please note, we do NOT invest in consumer focused businesses, unless the solution is clearly defensible, well-differentiated and operating in an attractive market. In these cases opportunities will only be screened if introduced by one of the members or close associates.
