Investor Focus Week 8


We’re now in week 8 of our Investor Focus blog series here at Match Capital, and this week we’ve handpicked a fine collection of early stage investors to showcase.

With over 650 profiled investors on our platform it’s always tough to narrow down a selection for this blog, but continuing our look at very early stage investors, we’ve managed to come up with a really great five for you this week.
