NAVIGATING AMBITION

Who we are

Buy and Build is at the heart of every investment we make and we are a market leader in supporting companies pursuing this strategy.

Our Journey

We are a new, specialist investor with the benefit of our partners having worked together previously for almost a decade. In January 2018, we identified a significant market opportunity to invest in technology and services businesses up to £50m in Enterprise Value and launched the Horizon Capital partnership.

Our investment approach is based on a simple, repeatable value creation model with transformation at its core. Buy and build is at the heart of every Horizon Capital investment and we are a market leader in supporting companies pursuing this strategy. Our proven track record investing in technology and services business is unparalleled, with 60 add on acquisitions completed in our first 3 years.

Our sector focus on technology and services coupled with our buy and build approach is what makes us truly unique.

Sector Specialists

The Horizon Capital team has a deep understanding of the dynamics of technology and services businesses built from years of experience investing in these sectors. Our sector focussed approach enables us to stay ahead of the trends in our market and means we are often early investors into high growth niches.

The sector experience we have also makes us strong and empathetic partners to the management teams we work with.

Entrepreneurial

We embrace the entrepreneurial spirit and approach throughout an investment’s journey with us. We work in close partnership with our management teams, jointly defining mutual success and planning the growth trajectory and key milestones together.

We also give practical support, governance and ongoing financial investment in pursuit of our agreed growth plan. We can draw on an extensive network of experts to deliver strategic guidance in any aspect of business management and operations.

Experts in Growth

We support all of our companies in driving growth as part of our jointly defined approach. We’ve developed particular expertise in ‘buy and build’ where we work with our management teams to develop the right balance of acquisition and organic growth.

Strategically selected acquisitions help expand market share, extend geographic reach, build scale and add new capabilities – creating valuable, market-leading businesses with 60 add on acquisitions completed in our first 3 years.

We also work with our management teams to accelerate organic growth. We help develop a structured and agile approach to demand generation, selling and customer engagement.

We invest in mission-critical systems, infrastructure and processes. Most importantly, we focus on the people – we help recruit and retain management talent and other expertise from our extensive network.
