Investment Process

Our Venture Partners will undertake the first round of filtering. In this way we effectively bring in the highest quality VC advisory and filtering skills for our chosen sectors. 

As each Venture Partner fund accelerates its own follow-on investment, in certain select circumstances Prisma may choose to significantly concentrate investment. We have the confidence to do so knowing that the investee companies selected have survived and thrived under the close eye of a Venture partner like Blackbird or One Ventures. 

Early stage risk is thus spread, but it provides us with an insider's view of likely breakout success stories. 

In exceptional circumstances - and solely within early stage companies targeting public sector disruption or public discussion - we will act as the lead funder.
