Founding Partner & CEO

Parminder Basran

Parminder worked in FMCG for 7 years before attending business school, subsequently founding VGC in 2011.

The first investments were made on a deal-by-deal basis, and these included Metropolis London, a music studio, production, publishing and agency business.

Subsequent investments included Round World Entertainment, the holding company of 10Ten Talent, the football and talent management business, Iconic Images, the owner of the photographic archive of Terry O’Neill and Super Awesome, the fast-growing kid tech business based in London.

In March 2019 the team achieved a final close of VGC Partners Fund I, backed by institutional investors, family offices and high net worth individuals, to focus on growth companies in the consumer and media sectors in the U.K.

Parminder attended Rutgers University in New Jersey and has a BA in Management Studies from the University of Leeds. He also holds an MBA from London Business School.
