We all like the personal touch. We like to go into our favourite shop or restaurant and be recognised, welcomed and treated like an individual.
Marketing is no different...Read more...
We are passionate about good ideas and how to turn them into a successful business. We love companies that are a little bit different and have the potential to disrupt their markets. We like disruption. We like trying to think of new and better ways of doing things. We believe strongly that industries maintain their status quo for far too long and we like businesses that continually challenge this.
Notion only invests in Cloud Computing and Software-as-a-Service for the enterprise - a market where we have been pioneers, business builders and investors for more than ten years. We believe that only investing in areas where we have direct experience gives us an advantage in the market and, as such, we have a clearly defined investment focus.
If you are a founder/CEO in a fast-growing start-up that provides Cloud-based services we would love to hear from you.However, to establish that there is a good fit, please make sure you meet all these criteria before sending through any further information.
Does your company:
- Provide a one-to-many Cloud-based service
- Serve business customers (rather than consumers)
- Generate at least 50% of its revenues through a recurring revenue model
- Have a live product in beta or on general release, with real users / customers
- Have its headquarters or a significant presence in the UK or Europe
If the answer is "no" to any of these questions, then your business is outside of our investment strategy.
If the answer is "yes" to all of them then we would like to hear from you. You can reach us directly or through someone we both know which we think is the best approach. To contact us directly we recommend you approach the partner you think would be the best matched for your business via email or LinkedIn. You can also send through a brief teaser or deck to firstname.lastname@example.org
Ten things we really like to see in a business that suggests that it is here to stay and has the potential to really shake up its market are as follows:
