Playfair Capital is an early-stage fund that commits to companies early and with conviction. Based in London, Playfair combines the best aspects of angel investing with a focused fund, to invest in truly ambitious founders, wherever they are in the world. Playfair takes a sector-agnostic approach and investments span deep tech, SaaS, marketplaces and B2B companies. We’ve backed the founders of more than 60 companies including Mapillary (acq. Facebook), CryptoFacilities (acq. Kraken), Omnipresent, Orca AI, Ravelin, sprout.ai, Thought Machine, Trouva and Vinehealth. We believe in access for all not warm intros. We review all inbound pitches through our website. If you're a founder, please submit your application there and we will get back to you within two weeks. Our typical investment is £100k-£500k into pre-seed and seed stage companies raising rounds of up to £2m.
