The fund

We've partnered with Britbots, an early-stage investment fund, who believe that automation and robotisation offer one of the few solutions to the increasing global issues posed by falling productivity and a shrinking labor pool.

Together we will be seeking the most promising emerging tech businesses in the UK and helping them move into their next phase of growth, with Britbots expert capital, fuelled by the power of crowds.

Emerging technologies market

There has arguably never been a more crucial point in human history – as an enabler, technology is our answer to tackling the largest challenges we face in sustainability, financial inclusion, cybersecurity and more. In the robotics sector specifically, compound annual growth rates have been in excess of 40% since 2016 and as robotics become more "intelligent" with the growth of computing power, the global market value is expected to exceed £230bn by 2022.

The UK offers a fertile ground for innovations in emerging technology and has over the years seen some of the industries most prolific exits, including Microsoft's aquisition of Swiftkey, Google's of Deepmind, Twitter's of Magic Pony and Apple's acquisition of VocalIQ.
