LONDON, UK: SuperSeed Capital Limited expressed intention to list its ordinary shares to trading on the Access Segment of the Aquis Stock Exchange Growth Market (AQSE Growth Market). Admission is targeted for January 2022.
SuperSeed Capital will be a feeder fund, investing as a limited partner of SuperSeed Ventures second fund, SuperSeed II LP (“Fund II”), managed by SuperSeed Ventures LLP as the Company’s Investment Manager.
Through this listing, SuperSeed Capital’s investors will gain exposure to investments in UK early-stage technology companies, an asset class that is usually only accessible to private market investors.
VSA Capital Limited have been appointed as AQSE Corporate Adviser and Broker to the Company for the proposed Admission.
Mads Jensen, Investment Manager of SuperSeed Capital Limited, said: “We established SuperSeed Ventures in 2018 to empower ambitious entrepreneurs to create exceptional B2B companies in software and AI and deliver outstanding returns to investors.
“Venture capital investments have traditionally been accessible mainly to ultra-high net worth investors. Now we aim to provide public markets investors access to exciting venture capital opportunities through the listing of SuperSeed Capital. There is an emerging trend of venture capital firms going public and we believe this will become increasingly common in the future.
“Having started, built and sold multiple companies as both founders and investors, we are amongst a select group of only 8% of UK VCs who have both VC investment experience and have worked at a start-up.
We use our first-hand experience as former operators to successfully identify and guide companies with growth potential. We believe real customer traction is the key determinant of sustainable business success for technology start-ups.
Therefore, we apply our knowledge of software and enterprise sales to assess product market fit before investment, and often directly support founders in developing the sales model and product roadmap to reduce risk of failure.
“SuperSeed Capital will be the first feeder fund to be listed on Aquis. It will also be the first listed fund that provides access to a fund in the British Business Bank’s Enterprise Capital Funds programme.
The IPO will enable us to provide even more capital and support to early-stage UK B2B technology companies. Combined with our hands-on expertise in the SaaS and AI technology domains, the funding will help deliver outstanding results for all stakeholders and we look forward to the exciting opportunities ahead.”
