Mobeus Committed To Growth
Mobeus VCT Fundraising
Mobeus is delighted to announce that it continues to develop its investment team, promoting Greg Blin and Amit Hindocha to Investment Director, and Dominic Draysey to Investment Executive.
Greg and Amit both specialise in supporting exciting young British businesses with growth capital. Greg led the investments in MPB, the UK’s largest online marketplace in photographic equipment, and Buster + Punch, the London-based interiors business, while Amit led investments in MyTutor, the leading digital platform for online tuition in the UK, and Tapas Revolution, the Spanish restaurant chain. Dominic supports the Mobeus buyout team, most recently on the buyout of Arc Specialist Engineering, which was announced last week.
Amit joined Mobeus from BGF in 2016 and has also worked as a management consultant advising on transactions. Greg joined in 2013, bringing experience from Piper Private Equity and PwC Corporate Finance. Dominic joined as a graduate from the University of Cambridge in 2014.
Trevor Hope, Partner & Head of the Growth Capital investment team, who joined the business 18 months ago after the change in VCT rules, commented, "We have invested £30 million of growth capital in nine fast-growing businesses since the change in VCT regulations. We are very pleased that our growth investment strategy is delivering exciting new investments, executed by our high quality, experienced investment professionals, including Amit and Greg, both of whom thoroughly deserve their promotions."
Mark Wignall, Mobeus Managing Partner, added "Mobeus acted decisively after the VCT rule change. We committed to raising our first institutional fund, which we announced just last week had closed at £166m, surpassing our initial target of 150m. We also subdivided our investment team to focus on two different but complementary investment strategies: buyouts and growth capital. We have made a number of impressive hires in the interim and are now very pleased to promote these three talented investment professionals."
