About us


Initial Capital is an investor in seed and early-stage technology companies with a focus on games, consumer services and technology enablers. We're not a traditional VC fund - we're a group of serial entrepreneurs who invest our own money and actively partner with world class teams to build global category winners.


Based out of London and Silicon Valley, we've played a key part in growing companies like Glu Mobile ($350M IPO in 2007), Playfish ($400M sale to EA in 2009) and Supercell (Finland-based global leader in iOS-based games).


Early stage fund raising is not just about money. It's about finding the best team around you to help with the ups and downs of the business and get ongoing advice on everything from product and tech to recruitment and growth. We know because we've been there.

We are building a new kind of gaming experience for tablets and other touch devices.
