The Midven Journey

Midven was originally established as a venture capitalist firm by six Midlands-based entrepreneurs in 1990. The company went through a management buy-out in 2007, when the investment team acquired the business from the original founders.

Since Midven became wholly owned by its management team, its grown quickly and solidly, more than doubling the team size and funds managed. To date, every fund that has been under Midven’s management has been regionally-focused.

In April 2021, Midven was acquired by Future Planet Capital. Future Planet Capital is a global venture capital and impact investor, connecting the world’s largest investors to the best minds in order to address global challenges. Future Planet Capital’s goal is to profitably solve the world’s greatest challenges in climate change, education, health, sustainable growth and security.
