Cambridge Capital Group Comes of Age

Sep 20, 2021

Cambridge Capital Group Comes of Age Cambridge Capital Group is 21 years old in October this year. Back in year 2000 as the 1990’s tech book was crashing spectacularly a small group of East Anglian entrepreneurs and business owners met over a pub lunch to discuss the launch of a new angel syndicate. They had the foresight to focus their attention on our local hi-tech centre around Cambridge University and the Science Park, having started with two spinout investments alongside VC contacts in 1997-98. One was nCipher which listed successfully and produced a great return for early investors; the other was Cavendish Kinetics, which finally exited 21 years later! We agreed a model which aligned the team with investors and decided to focus on B2B technology ventures across the spectrum of sectors, which of course Cambridge is blessed with. The growth of the syndicate into a well-established private investment network has mirrored (in a small way) the incredible growth of Cambridge as Europe’s most dynamic and important tech cluster. CCG has provided a platform for 200+ private investors and business angels from a wide range of commercial backgrounds to source, screen and invest tens of millions of pounds in more than one hundred ventures from Cambridge and other key innovation centres around Britain. The model has proved itself such that our members have enjoyed 10 successful exits in the last five years alone, and returns have been amplified by EIS tax reliefs. Members have gone on to co-found and chair Cambridge Innovation Capital, invest in IQ Capital deep tech funds, chair Cambridge Angels and mentor ventures emanating from the Judge Business School Accelerate programme and Cambridge Enterprise spinouts. Two members based in Jersey partnered with CCG to create the CCG International chapter, expanding our reach and capacity. The group has been a long-term member of the UK Business Angels Association. CCG management has conducted a series of clinics for entrepreneurs at most of the incubators in Cambridge and other centres, and for several years we have provided very successful internships for MBA and MFin students from the Judge, even launching the careers of several analysts now working at leading venture investment companies. Our charitable CCG Trust has raised more than $225,000 for conservation, with a grants programme in support of biodiversity and rural livelihoods in Africa. Over the years CCG has been supported by many corporate sponsors, some of whom have been working with our members and investee companies for more than a decade. Therefore we thank our friends at Taylor Vinters, Potter Clarkson, Signia Wealth, RSM, Bailey Fisher and Barclays Eagle Labs. Key corporate members also investing into our portfolio include Milltrust International, manager of the British Innovation Fund, U-Blox and Martlet, the corporate venturing arm of Marshall of Cambridge. Above all we are grateful to our loyal members, individuals and families who are willing to invest risk capital into the best of British early-stage technology ventures and the brave and talented entrepreneurs who drive them. We hope that we have made a modest contribution to the growth of the Cambridge Phenomenon and British technology over the last 21 years.
