Early stage investor and ally for management teams

Early stage investor and ally for management teams

We are experts in early-stage venture capital, with a focus on the Web3 space, leveraging distributed ledger technology to create more resilient systems, achieve greater efficiencies through disintermediation, and ultimately to build a whole new internet built on the principles of decentralisation and autonomy over personal data and assets.

We invest in and structure early-stage venture deals, providing deep strategic counsel to the projects we back. We become the most value-add investor on any cap table. We also leverage our network to fundraise for our portfolio companies and have the regulatory permissions (via the FCA appointed representative regime) to manage and arrange deals in the UK and Europe.

We are the sounding board to CEOs and management teams. Our mission at The Reserve Ventures is to be the most respected and sought after ally for management teams building the future of money, governance and data.
