m8 Capital invests exclusively in mobile technology.
That’s all we do.
Mobile technology is changing everything we do. It is enabling
services, products and information to be more pervasive, more
relevant, and more convenient. m8 Capital looks to support
entrepreneurs and their companies, that are positioning themselves
to be at the forefront of all things mobile.
Our geographic focus is Europe. But we will selectively invest
in exciting mobile enterprises outside of Europe.
Our management team have extensive network of relationships
across the globe, and where appropriate, we look to harness our
relationships for the benefit of our portfolio companies.
We ideally seek opportunity to invest at the growth capital
stage of an enterprise’s development, but for the opportunity
to work with exceptional management teams, we will invest at other
stages of a company’s capital requirement.
m8 Capital is a majority-owned affiliate of AGC Equity
