ABOUT US AT STONE VENTURES
Stone Venture Partners was created to specifically support small and medium size businesses who need a combination of finance, hands on support and who fall in the “equity gap” between bank support (under £100,000) and traditional venture capital (over £1m). We’re also a little bit different because we treat ourselves as partners with our investee businesses and play a part in the growth of the business. We only work with talented management teams who show the requisite ability to take advantage of the opportunity they have identified and who share our passion and support for a partnership. Our in-house legal teams can support our business partners with a wide range of legal issues, from property & contacts to mergers & acquisitions. We can also help with accountancy & finance, sales & marketing and with supporting business strategy. Practically, where there are skill gaps in your management team, we can provide a “skill bridge” until the right people or suppliers are attracted to the business.
  • “A person who is quietly confident makes the best leader.”

  • “The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.”

  • “Diligence is the mother of good luck.”

  • “Whether you think you can, or think you can’t – you’re right.”

  • “No matter how brilliant your mind or strategy, if you’re playing a solo game, you’ll always lose out to a team.”

  • “The secret to successful recruitment is to look for the people who want to change the world."

  • “Anything that is measured and watched, improves.”

  • “Timing, perseverance, and ten years of trying will eventually make you look like an overnight success.”

  • “Don’t try to be original, just try to be good”

  • “Chase the vision, not the money, the money will end up following you.”

  • “If you can’t feed a team with two pizzas, it’s too large.”
