Private Equity

Smedvig Captial was founded more than 20 years ago by Peter Smedvig and Johnny Hewett. Its vision then, as it is now, was to invest in great management teams and work closely with them to help maximise the speed and certainty of growth.

What we do

We work closely with a small number of high-quality teams. We build strong relationships with our founders and aren’t afraid to roll up our sleeves when needed, supporting them through the inevitable ups and downs of growing a business. We’re a flexible source of capital with a long-term view, often backing companies over multiple rounds all the way to exit.

Series A/B

We lead Series A and B rounds with cheques from £2-15M and often invest in multipe follow on rounds as the business grows.

Ambition

We look for ambitious management teams who are experts in their industry.

Potential

We look for either market leaders in a fast-growing niche or first movers disrupting a large, established market.

Tech enabled

We believe that differentiated technology disproportionately powers growth so focus all our attention on technology enables businesses.

Proven model

Rapid revenue growth with a run rate of at least £1M; satisfied customers; exciting unit economics that demonstrate the potential to be highly profitable at scale – whether pre or post profit today.
