Working alongside entrepreneurs and co-founders, we support our ventures from startup to scale to exit, giving them access to the global networks and business development services they need to grow.
This support is bolstered by the innovation partnerships we forge with big businesses. Our digital expertise helps them be more agile, while their global scope helps our ventures scale faster.
Founded in 1998 Blenheim Chalcot traces its roots back to netdecisions, the internet services group. Already back then we set out to build companies to transform industry sectors. And since then we’ve become the UK’s leading venture builder, with portfolio sales of over £300m, more than 3,000 employees, and a successful track record of over 40 companies.
Our approach to transforming industries has always been the same. We identify high growth sectors, typically undergoing some market, technology or regulatory discontinuity, and look to build scalable platforms that satisfy a real customer need. We aim to build profitable companies, with sustainable business models.
We manage our investment through BCI Finance, our investment division. BCI structures our investment, advises our portfolio companies on financing, supports sourcing of external equity and debt capital for the Group and helps provide the financial knowledge and discipline our companies need to grow.
