Seed and series A funding for tech businesses is extremely hard to find - We are working on the solution

At Racefields we are building a team of like minded corporate investors who understand the great potential of investing in early stage tech businesses. Although regarded as high risk, tech is one of the only asset classes that can yield high returns in a relatively short time. Investing in tech can produce huge capital gain but it can also entertain people, give them a longer life and help save our planet along with all the other life forms that share it with us.

What we want to invest in

We want to invest in tech projects and companies operating in areas such as FinTech, BioTech, Big Data, Augmented and Virtual Reality, Renewable Energy, and any leading edge technology that promises substantial returns for our investors, the environment and society. We want to invest in people with a vision and a desire to succeed, people with a higher goal of making money whilst benefiting those around them.
