2 people are going
Are you an entrepreneur with an ecommerce idea? Do you need £250k? We will be holding our next “Office Hours” on Wednesday 4th March between 2pm and 4pm to meet solo-founders of ecommerce companies at the idea stage.

If you would like to come along please apply here: forwardpartners.typeform.com/to/YbVotb

We have already worked with a number of idea stage founders to get their ideas off the ground and find a co-founder. We backed Matt Fox at SnapTrip, a last-minute self catered breaks service and Daniel Van Binsbergen at Lexoo a marketplace connecting SMEs and lawyers.

We typically offer £250k over three tranches to these idea stage businesses where our minimum requirement is that the founder has a well formed and well researched idea. We can help develop and validate the idea, build a product and find a co-founder. You can read more about our solo founder hypothesis here and about how we helped Snaptrip here.

WHAT WE LOOK FOR
It’s simple! We’re looking for great entrepreneurs with great ideas that attack big markets. We have a preference for individuals with domain expertise and we love people who obsess over product and understanding their customers.

OUR FOCUS
Our sector focus is the ecommerce ecosystem. We define that broadly to include any consumer facing business where there is a clear transaction/purchase and B2B companies that sell to ecommerce companies. We particularly like innovative shopping models, innovative product companies and software and services for small ecommerce businesses.

Three examples from our portfolio:

Thread.com is a free personal shopping service Lost My Name make beautiful and amazing personalised books
Parcelbright helps SMEs save time & money on parcel delivery

We are holding our next Office Hours on Wednesday 4th March, between 2pm and 4pm. You can come in for a 15 min chat with a member of our investment team. We’re happy to give advice, we’re happy to discuss your idea and we’re happy to be pitched.
