Founded by Parminder Basran in 2011, the firm has c. £100m under management across several funds and investment vehicles. VGC Partners is backed by a number of institutions and a select group of high net worth individuals who have experience in building consumer, media and technology companies.

We are a growth capital investor. Our strategy involves taking significant minority stakes in private companies. We then work alongside management to optimise value during our ownership and help our companies sell to private equity or trade purchasers.

We back talented CEOs and management teams who can demonstrate an ability to execute operationally and create value. The selection criteria for companies in which we invest is rigorous and we constantly think about how we can help businesses over and above just the provision of capital.

VGC Partners leverages technology, corporate partners and operational networks across the US, Europe and Asia-Pacific to help drive meaningful growth for our portfolio companies.

Many of the VGC Partners team are entrepreneurs as well as investors. This gives us empathy with the management teams we back as we can often offer advice and guidance from first-hand personal experience through an understanding of many of the challenges they face.
