Taurus Asset Finance - Martin Taylor
ARIE Capital began investing in technology companies in 2016, following on from two early technology investments that its parent company, Taurus Asset Finance, made in 2013.
Since then, our company has made fifteen technology-based investments. We are proud of our vibrant and diverse portfolio that continues to increase exponentially in valuation, with two exits already made.
Following these principles, we have now assembled a dedicated team to focus on the development of EIS opportunities and cultivate exciting new technologies.
We are partnering with companies and founders that are well known to ARIE Capital and have already shown considerable growth and development. We look to nurture these companies so that they will be ready for further funding in the future (from ourselves or other investors), which will be to the benefit of all concerned.
