We combine digital resources with access to our team of professional venture capital, growth capital and private equity investors

While entrepreneurs are pushing the boundaries in their respective fields, the investment industry has changed very little in decades. The challenges faced by entrepreneurs in accessing investment are down to a lack of transparency and accessibility.

As investors, I believe we have more to gain from sharing our trade secrets than we have to lose. The imbalance in knowledge and understanding between owner managers and investors is detrimental to an industry that is ultimately dependent upon successful partnership.

I founded Capitalex to correct this imbalance through bringing the expertise and experience of investors to entrepreneurs.”

Jessica Zoutsos, Founder and CEO
