Full-Stack VC for Efficient Startups

D2 lead with equity and can follow with debt as you scale. We help founders own more of their business at exit.

Bringing the right capital at the right time

D2 invests in early stage technology businesses with initial ticket sizes of £200k-£1M either in equity or using our own HERO convertible note. As you scale, we can provide debt capital to fund the predictable parts of your business or to provide credit to your customers. We love being the first institutional money a founder receives and we are committed to the long term. If that sounds interesting to you, we’d love to talk.

1 The Right Ingredients

We offer founders the choice of either a normal equity round like any other VC, or our founder-friendly HERO convertible note. The HERO goes beyond equity by preserving your optionality and maximises the alignment between us and you.

2 Protecting Your Slice

As you scale, we help you retain more ownership of your business by providing debt capital to fund the parts of your business that are working well or for you to offer credit to your customers

3 Growing the Pie

We work d*mn hard every day to help our founders succeed, and we bring the support of our growing community of like minded start-ups and investors. D2 never leaves a partner behind.

Startup founders usually end up owning less than 10% of their business at exit. Let's do this differently.
