We look at investment opportunities through the eyes of entrepreneurs as much as we do venture capitalists. We invest the time to understand the opportunity, the resources available, and the gaps that need to be filled to help our portfolio companies plan a route to success

Ascension runs a number of UK funds from Seed to Series A, and is happy to lead rounds or follow alongside other funds or angel investors

Ascension runs the Fair By Design social impact fund and the Unicorn Ascension UK-India Fund, alongside its two core ASCEND SEIS and CENTAUR EIS funds

The Ascension team is awesome – very entrepreneurial, super well-connected, huge advocates for what we are doing and always on hand to offer advice, contacts or support. In the 6 months we’ve been working together they’ve nominated us for a highly coveted UK Business Angels Association award (which we won), introduced us to a high-profile supporter who is now a likely lead for our next raise and are helping us to get coverage in national press
Nathalie Richards, Founder Edukit
Ascension Ventures has been fantastic supporters of our business. Their investment was just the first step because since then, their practical support, endless enthusiasm and sound strategic advice have been invaluable
Joshua Davidson, Founder Night Zookeeper
Ascension is one of my favourite early-stage investors in the UK. I met them a few years ago when they had just made their last investment from their first SEIS Fund and quickly realised that they were very switched on to what was going on in London and across the UK
John Spindler, Founder London Co-Investment Fund (LCIF)
