Out of all the investors we spoke to Pentech definitely had the best understanding of our technology and market.
Personally, they were easy to deal with and the contacts we've been introduced to have been impressive: influential, effective and extremely helpful.

Great team who really know software. Over the years they've built solid links with other European funds notably Amadeus and 3i and can draw on the experience of their advisory group so definitely punch above their weight. Very open and honest.

Great Guys, Smart in Software

Fund: Pentech Ventures

Posted by DouglasRichard on 2007-08-16

PUBLIC:

Pentch is an important fund in the UK. There are very very few software funds in play that will invest in the early stages and Pentech admirably fills that gap. They are no nonsense, willing to take risk and v. straightforward. They respect the entrepreneur and will give quick honest feedback. Worth pitching to if you've got a big idea in software
