Mylor Ventures and Capital Pilot have agreed a strategic alliance to drive greater levels of investment in early stage technology businesses in the South West. Under the alliance Mylor’s angel network, MyVAN and Capital Pilot’s recently formed Launchpad South West will work together to connect more startups to investors focused on this region. Mylor Ventures has an active offline investment readiness and advisory business which complements the national online investment readiness and investor matching platform built by Capital Pilot and now serving approximately 1,000 startups across the country.
Mylor Ventures and Capital Pilot will work with the public and private sectors to ensure that more companies headquartered in the South West receive the support and funding they need to scale up and build the regional economy.
Rob Misselbrook, CEO of Mylor Ventures said: “We are delighted to be working with Capital Pilot to extend the reach of our client companies and investors, and look forward to supporting more startups and investors through a series of initiatives to grow this vital element of the economy of the South West.
Richard Blakesley, CEO of Capital Pilot said: “Capital Pilot’s mission is to promote transparency and efficiency in early stage fundraising so that no part of the UK economy – geographic, demographic or sectoral – is disadvantaged relative to the whole. Our partnership with Mylor Ventures means we can bring the best support and funding opportunities to the South West”
