Enterprise People Earth
TSP Ventures is a Venture Capital & Strategic Advisory firm.
We support start-ups and early- stage businesses with capital, connections, coaching and advice.
“Our core belief is that businesses must serve the long-term wellbeing of people and of the Earth. We believe strongly that having a noble purpose and making money should not be viewed as mutually exclusive.
When we back a company or entrepreneur, we believe that the advice we give must be the very best, the support we offer must come from the heart as well as the head and that helping early-stage businesses is a privilege as well as a responsibility.”
Chris Smith, CEO TSP Ventures
Our Investment Strategy
We look for companies and entrepreneurs with a purpose, who have a product or service that will improve on the way things currently are. Although we invest across sectors we tend to be drawn to digital and technological solutions that solve obvious problems.
We back people we trust and who have a strong value-set, coupled with the drive and smarts to deliver on a plan.
We also need to feel that the business we are backing wants and needs our help so that we can add significant value for all shareholders. We have extensive experience managing businesses and coaching executives and creating company cultures which attract and motivate talent.
We invest in businesses from pre-seed to Series A and are often the lead investor during the seed stages. We like to take an active but minority, non-controlling stake.
We prioritise company-building over deal-making.
We will be open, we will be honest, we will be wholehearted and we will be with you and back you all the way.
