Current Positions at CIP

Consultant Capital Raiser

 

About

CIP was founded by two UHNW investors to better facilitate their sourcing, screening and direct investing in disruptive, SaaS based tech businesses as they begin their global expansion.

Our aim is to build the leading specialist angel investment network in the UK. We intend to deliver industry leading returns to our investors and generate significant capital value for CIP’s shareholders.

i.     The founders, Andrew Jenkins and Jeremy Middleton CBE, share 20 years of experience in building, advising and funding high growth businesses. Andrew sourced and financed Mimecast, now one of the top performing stocks on NASDAQ with a market cap of around $2 billion. Jeremy, the founder of HomeServe, a FTSE 250 business, heads up a multimillion family office successfully investing in a concentrated portfolio of public and private companies.

iii.     CIP typically invest in between 2 to 4 ‘Conviction’ portfolio companies a year, with the intention of doing an annual raise for each every 12 to 18 months.

iv.      Typical investments range from $5-$10m per transaction, therefore $20-$40m is invested each year.

Some of CIP’s successful exits include Mimecast and iZettle. Currently, the syndicate is invested in two “Conviction” portfolio companies, Adepto and Oradian, where CIP acts as lead investor and both founders committed their personal capital. There are further smaller investments in 10 “Incubator” companies which have the potential to be elevated to the “Conviction” portfolio.
