Why Haatch?

Haatch is an investment business backing early-stage growth focused digital companies. Founded by Scott Weavers-Wright and Fred Soneya in 2013 as an angel co-investment joint venture under the “Haatch Angel” brand. Haatch Ventures was born in September 2018 and was excited to welcome Simon Penson (founder of Zazzle Media) and Mark Bennett (VP for Android GTM for Google) as partners. Since then it has successfully launched Haatch EIS Funds in 2018 and Haatch SEIS Funds in 2021.

Digital is a key growth driver across many industries. Haatch is therefore able to remain broad in sectors yet focused on the most transformative businesses. Haatch uses its significant venture capital relationships to help provide the portfolio with funding, as well as leveraging its business relationships and brand to provide portfolio businesses with support from product development to marketing to FTSE 100 introductions.
