We start with an introductory meeting to understand your background and the company that you’re building. If we’re excited by your vision, and there’s alignment with EVP in terms of company stage and profile, we’ll begin early due diligence. This involves diving into performance metrics, understanding the product and team in more detail, and exploring the market opportunity. We’re conscious of not wasting time, so we do our best to keep this process fair and efficient.

At the next stage, we’ll introduce you to our Investment Committee and will give you an opportunity to meet the whole EVP team. Following the Investment Committee meeting, we’ll move quickly to provide you with a term sheet, a written offer confirming the specific terms of an investment. We’ll also introduce you to other founders across the portfolio so you can hear first hand what it’s like working with EVP. Once we’re all agreed on the terms, we’ll move quickly to finalise an investment.

Whilst we’re early stage investors, we do not invest pre-revenue. We look for a product in market, an established early customer base and strong revenue growth.This means we invest typically at the Series A stage, but we are not too concerned about the label. If you can demonstrate a differentiated product, growing revenue and strong customer demand, we’re keen to talk.

Our first investment typically ranges between $1-5m. We reserve capital to be able to continue supporting you in subsequent rounds.

Absolutely. We love the capital efficiency inherent in software models, and would be unlikely to invest in a pure hardware business. We’re entirely comfortable with hardware as part of a bundled product offering.

To us, active means involvement – not in a “we’ll tell you how to run your company” kind of way, but in a “call us whenever you need something, we’re here to be partners” kind of way. Some founders, particularly at the early stage, look to us for significant input at an operational level and will be in touch with EVP virtually on a daily basis.

Others, typically further along on the journey, turn to us for assistance on strategic decisions in relation to long term planning, organisational design, key hires and capital. Our “active” investment mandate also means we have a strong preference for serving as lead investor in funding rounds, and we always look for a board seat following our investment.
