Where We Add Value

MonacoSol investment adds the most value to technology and software businesses based in the UK, typically ranging from £500,000 to £5 million turnover.

Our team have worked to support business founders across a range of industries to rapidly increase their growth with financial investment to develop their solutions and products, mature their sales and marketing strategy and successfully achieve an exit.

The MonacoSol directors understand the challenges technology founders face because they have faced them themselves. They bring this first-hand experience and expertise to bear to support our founders on their own journey.

A Track Record of Success

The Directors at MonacoSol have an enviable track record in building software and technology businesses, with Chairman Richard having acquired, grown and exited many different businesses over an investment career that started in the 1990s after leaving his board director role with Philips UK.

Richard and the other members of the MonacoSol team have all been involved in a wide variety of investment businesses, working to build these enterprises independently and alongside management teams and with the support of private equity partners, which have all resulted in significant returns for investors. Below, you can see some of the more recent exits from Richard and the MonacoSol team.
