They back companies early and work with their community of founders and advisers to help founders get further and faster from the very beginning.

What Kindred Capital invest in…
AI, autonomous vehicles, marketplaces, marketing tech, drones and medtech, to name just a few - making them a pretty diverse VC firm. However as a rule, they always look for UK companies, with strong founders, who are trying to solve real problems and create a world we’d want to live in.

Setting up a Lifestyle Management company that has thrown celebrity events that has received international press coverage to providing business development for clients in the entertainment industry Aneka is a natural host!
