Struan McDougallCambridge Capital Group was founded on behalf of a syndicate of entrepreneurs in 2000. We are a private syndicate of business angels and co-investment funds from East Anglia, London and the Channel Islands. Our goal is to support the best early-stage technology ventures emanating from Europe's leading hi-tech cluster, Cambridge, London, Oxford: "The Golden Triangle". Our growing network totals over 80 investors, who come together at quarterly member-only investment events to view a selection of screened investment opportunities from the technology sector. Members also have full access to our online deal portal.

Cambridge Capital Group operates a direct investment model via a semi-formal structure. Members must be accredited High Net Worth Individuals or self-certified Sophisticated Investors. Deal flow is screened by a screening committee of members; analysis, negotiation and due diligence is a collaborative process but investor members invest directly into portfolio companies as part of a syndicate.

Cambridge Capital Group tends to syndicate its investments with other leading business angels and co-investment seed funds. We invite new ventures to pitch to our members at quarterly investor events held at historic Cambridge colleges. All our members have strong commercial experience ranging from technology entrepreneurs to the City and the professions, owners of substantial private companies and healthcare, engineering and private equity.

The group is managed by 2 full-time directors and supported by an investment analyst and events assistant. Deal flow is shared with group chapters listed below:
