Tech Investment and Growth Advisory

We operate as your Chief Investment Officer working on behalf of you to secure investment from £350k to £5m.


Our core services include, but not limited to

Investment Readiness

We work with you to ensure your tech company is as ready as it can be before you pitch to investors. Prior to Investment Readiness, we work on Company Readiness, so that there are no delays in growing your company upon receipt of investment.

Investor Roadshow

We work with you to identify the right investors for your organisation based on the stage your company is in and your specific growth needs and aspirations. We introduce legal and financial advisors to ensure you are well looked after during negotiations.

Post Investment Growth Support

Techcelerate Specialists are available to fill talent gaps you might have. Through our recruitment partners, we can facilitate and speed up recruitment post-investment. Techcelerate Network can then step into open new markets for your company helping you to achieve scale.


Having started trading on 1st August 2018, we are still working with our first customer - so will be able to provide case studies in the near future. We are limiting our focus to 5 customers in our first year, so if you think we are the right organisation to help your technology company achieve its aspirations, please get in touch.
