Our mission is to help ambitious software founders create great AI/software companies. We do that by providing hands-on support and capital that helps start-ups rapidly grow to the first £1m in revenue. SuperSeed is created by experienced software entrepreneurs Mads Jensen and Dan Bowyer. As investors, SuperSeed’s focus is on helping start-ups create and refine their go-to-market strategies, so they can boost revenue growth and get on the path to building successful businesses.
We focus exclusively on B2B, and like working with companies that use AI to tackle technically complex problems. We think we can provide the best support in domains we know well, and historically B2B, SaaS and AI have historically been our core areas. When we give you advice as investors, it’s not just founded on ideas of what might work. We have quite possibly been in your situation ourselves (and have scars to prove it), and if sharing that experience with you can help you avoid the worst pitfalls, save some time and get you more quickly to the next milestone, then we feel we have accomplished.
We invest in your company and run a bespoke accelerator program for you and your start-up.
As experienced software entrepreneurs, we integrate with your team and work with them daily to refine your product, model and proposition while we open doors for sales & distribution.
Co-operating allows us to significantly increase the chance of success by quickly achieving key goals to accelerate towards your next valuation milestone. This helps de-risking your journey to scale-up.
There is no fixed program and to stay focused we only work with a small handful of businesses at any one time, rather than the more traditional cohort-based accelerator model.
We help you
