About Us


We Are Entrepreneurs Ourselves

Midven was originally established as a venture capitalist firm by six Midlands based entrepreneurs in 1990. The company then 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, we have grown quickly and solidly, more than doubling the team size and funds managed.

We are confident in the future of Midven and the companies we invest in.

Like our portfolio companies we have ambitious plans. We continue to target new funds focused on the early stage, technology and SME markets, capitalising on our expertise in these areas.


The Type of Businesses We Invest In

We support companies to achieve their ambitions and look for talented management teams with a well developed proposition and vision.

Our focus is on:

  • Fast growing small and medium sized businesses
  • Either early stage or established
  • Located primarily in the West Midlands with exception for the Rainbow Seed Fund
  • Requiring up to £1m of investment in an initial fundraising round

With the equity capital and added value we provide, we can guide businesses to a profitable exit.


The Added Value We Bring

  • We give entrepreneurs that support they need, when they need it, taking our role seriously as board members or advisors.
  • Our experience has taught us what is important for success in the various stages of a company’s growth and we pass on that knowledge.
  • With our broad range of strategic and operational skills and expertise, we invest our time and effort to grow your company.

We can also connect you with the right resources when required.

  • We understand the difficulties of scaling from a start-up to a million dollar business.
  • We are with you for the long term through multiple funding rounds to a strategic exit.
  • We have a successful history as both investors and entrepreneurs.
