We are the largest specialist technology venture capital firm in Europe with the focus on early stage, B2B SaaS and FinTech. Since its inception in 2007, Dawn Capital has raised over £400m across 4 funds and co-investments.
Our investment strategy is to create capital gains through investing in European technologies that look set for high value growth. We have a track record of backing high-performing businesses including some of the most notable European tech unicorns, Mimecast, iZettle and Collibra.
We [CIP] have partnered up with Dawn Capital to co-invest and share our complementary deal flows and networks. Dawn typically invests in companies that generate in excess of £1m in Annual Recurring Revenues (ARR). CIP primarily invests in earlier, post-revenue opportunities and assumes a role of Dawn’s ‘incubator’.
Our partnership with Dawn helps fund our top-performing companies in later rounds. Additionally, CIP often co-invests along Dawn Capital in more mature, pre-exit businesses thereby offering our investors a diversified, cross-stage portfolio of VC investments. CIP is invested in Zumper, Dawn III and Dawn Opportunities Funds.
