IW Capital reveals new SME opportunities

20th April 2018

According to a new KPMG report profiling nearly 800 technology industry leaders across the world, the UK has been ranked the third most promising market for innovation. The 2018 Global Technology Innovation Report found that UK tech comes behind only China and the US when it comes to breakthroughs and disruption – a fantastic result for the nation’s burgeoning breakout sector. Through our history, IW Capital has remained committed to supporting some of the country’s most innovative SMEs, with a portfolio that spans the length and breadth of the British Isles, also reflecting the brilliant sectoral diversity our private sector presents.

IW Capital’s stellar portfolio of high-growth SMEs has been developed from a sector and location agnostic approach, driven steadily forward by a highly-skilled team of investment specialists who boast over 50 years in experience. With an unparalleled ability to scout the most prominent entrepreneurs and businesses that are defining tomorrow’s private sector, we hold great pride in some of the outstanding achievements delivered by all of our portfolio companies to date.

Serving as one of our two live opportunities, Ubamarket is an award-winning retail app which guides shoppers to their items, enables them to scan as they shop, links directly to their loyalty card and has a rapid in-app payment/e-receipt system, making the in-store experience easier, faster, frictionless and more personalised. Providing retailers with their own white label solution, the revolutionary ‘scan and go’ technology technology is billed by Grocer magazine as the UK’s most sophisticated supermarket app.

Our second live offer – Hill and Friends – is a luxe female apparel brand that produces exceptionally crafted and luxuriously functional bags. Co-founded by the previous Creative Director of Mulberry, the company is committed to producing bags that balance everyday functionality with timeless sophistication.
