Done differently.


We optimise the fundraising process for European startups & investors

Firstly, we partner with the most ambitious entrepreneurs raising their Next Round of funding, minimising the disruption to their business. We do this by helping them get investor-ready, introducing them to relevant investors*, and supporting them in closing their round with terms that are right for them.


Secondly, we help forward-looking Limited Partners identify the most promising Venture Fund Managers to promote the flow of venture capital into the European ecosystem.

*Excluding investors based in the US

Scale-up Capital.

We really enjoyed working with the Mountside team, leveraging their experience to support us in preparing for and completing our funding round.


We’re now laser-focused on growing the Sifted team and becoming the definitive media brand for Europe’s startup ecosystem.


Investing in companies and funds.

The Mountside Ventures team is awesome. Quality deal flow, impressive contact list and the team behind the best conference of the year we attended in 2019.


They helped us raise funds, and introduced us to some of our best performing companies. Genuine value add for GPs, LPs and companies.
