Our offer.

Funding that fits.

We know that every business has different needs. So we get involved from the early stages and provide fair funding options.

Expertise on demand.

We provide access to expertise built scaling dozens of successful businesses, to help founders gain a sustainable competitive advantage right from the start.

We worked out of their studio for the first year, we were literally born there. We're very close to them, they're more than just an investor and The Studio really helped us get off the ground.


Working with FP’s enterprise sales coach was the most formative intervention we made in 2018. We’d spent two years building a world-class product but the months of workshops and developing our sales playbook helped us to step-up our sales operation.
