More startup support
Seed Haus marks year one with two new investments
Grateful: Calum Forsyth and Robin Knox
Early stage Scottish investor Seed Haus has marked its first anniversary with investment into two further start-ups.
TopDog, a gaming platform, and PlayerBase, an esports platform, complement Seed Haus’s portfolio which includes companies working in cyber-security, robotics, IoT, communication, and logistics.
Founded by Calum Forsyth, CEO, and Robin Knox, chairman, the private initiative was set up to provide a mechanism through which to invest in and support best-in-class early stage founders.
Seed Haus says the portfolio of ten startups have made impressive progress over the last twelve months, raising further funding from angel and institutional investors. One portfolio company is already engaged in delivering an innovation lab for a Fortune 500 company.
Commenting on progress to date, Mr Forsyth said he was “incredibly grateful to the portfolio founders for allowing us to invest in their companies and accompany them on their respective journeys.”
He added: “We have some very big plans for the next year and look forward to announcing these in the near future.”
Seed Haus investors include Chris van der Kuyl, Sir Tom Hunter, Rob Dobson, and James Watt.
