Whitespace Focus

Whitespace builds tech companies. We act like a traditional venture firm by: sourcing deals, evaluating deals, negotiating deal terms, carrying out due diligence and importantly supporting and growing investments through to an exit. BUT we also allow investors choice over: which company they want to invest in, how they want to invest and for how long. AND we work with large Corporates who help accelerate the investee companies, co-invest and drive early exits for investors.
