Lead by Gil Penchina, Flight Ventures is a community of over 3,500 investors and 100 portfolio companies. In the past, the backers of our syndicates have had the opportunity to invest in companies that have raised money from – to name a few – Andreessen Horowitz, Kleiner Perkins, Sequoia, Founders Fund and Greylock.

Flight Ventures UK is led by our London-based partner, Nancy Fechnay. We created this syndicate to gives our backers the opportunity to invest in the best start-ups from the UK. Our network of entrepreneurs across the globe give us access to grade A+ dealflow. Previous successes include Linkedin (IPO), Paypal (IPO), Ziprealty (IPO), (IPO) and Fastly (at ~40x initial round).

Flight Ventures syndicates give investors the flexibility to participate in investment rounds in all stages. Simultaneously, the core team allows quick decision-making. Compared to traditional financial investors, we are actively leveraging our community of over 3,500 backers to help our portfolio companies grow.


The Flight Ventures UK team is screening a growing amount of deal flow out of the UK start-up scene. In the last 10 months we have worked to form partnerships with angels, incubators, accelerators and Universities around the country. By leveraging our U.S. network and growing UK partnerships, we source deals from the best UK companies and U.S. startups that are looking to launch in the UK.

Nancy is a firestarter and a dedicated businesswoman. She works her ass off and knows her stuff. She's an asset to any entrepreneur, it's great to have her in your corner.
When the chips were down I only thought I had two options, close the company or sell it. Gil encouraged me to choose a third option "aim for the moon". We did and the result is a profitable growing company on the way to success
