The world needs bigger ideas

about us
We want to invest in solutions to problems which impact a lot of people.

If you are simply iterating a market, 7percent is not for you. We seek the 200x winners and pass on the less risky, less ambitious opportunities. We are looking for moonshots.

We back the technologies and products that in ten years people will wonder how the world ever lived without -  the breakthrough companies and technologies.

What's in a name?

“A good early stage growth rate is 5-7% a week. If you can hit 10% a week you’re doing exceptionally well, but if you can only manage 1%, it’s a sign you haven’t yet figured out what you’re doing“
Paul Graham - Y Combinator
Our Process

Why take our money

/ 01

Ex-founder led with Silicon Valley ambition.

For 10 years we have been investing at pre-seed and seed as angel investors, then as VC’s. With experience operating as founders in both the U.K. and U.S. we have the confidence to back you to reach for the stars, with access to the expertise and capital via three unique networks related to 7percent.

Our Mantra: to help not hinder your startup.

This is a guiding principle in everything we do. Because our Partners are ex-Founders themselves, this helps us empathise. We have a better understanding than many other investors, of the challenges you will experience when building a company from scratch, because we’ve done it ourselves.  We have:

  • Founded, grown and sold successful tech startups
  • Founded tech startups and failed
  • Taken angel or VC investment for our own startups and raised it for others
  • Built transatlantic reach across startup ecosystems, from West and Eastern European to North America
  • Backed >150 companies over the past 10 years, as a firm or as angels.
