Rising Stars Funds - Enterprise Ventures

The RisingStars Funds seek out unique technologies with exceptional commercial prospects, and ambitious management teams with the ability to turn them into highly successful commercial enterprises which sell or licence their technology in international markets.

The funds aren’t seeking any new investment but are instead focused on managing and supporting the portfolio to build some really exciting businesses.
