Support beyond capital

We help our Founders accelerate to £1m ARR. How that looks practically is a nuanced approach to each portfolio company. We identify the mission-critical areas that need development to get to a scalable sales playbook, whether that’s training a Founder with limited sales rep experience to learn to do sales pitches, defining their funnel stages and instituting a qualification framework or building more data-driven email flows for building top-of-funnel prospects. We back Founders with market/product fit and focus on getting them product/channel fit, channel/model fit and model/market fit.

We leverage our network of GTM experts who were first sales hires at some of Europe’s most exciting SaaS companies, now generating £10m+ ARR. Whether it’s the experience you need with technical sales, expanding to the US or selling into a specific persona, we have someone in our network that can support you.

As pre-seed investors, we’re by no means risk-averse! We’re comfortable investing in pre-revenue business as long as your solution has proven value by directly tackling a presently felt pain for your ICP.

Other factors we look for include:

  • Team; a blend of commercial and technical ability amongst founding teams who have lived and breathed the problem they’re solving.
  • Market; companies operating in markets capable of spawning £1bn companies! We conclude how large a business’ serviceable obtainable market is by multiplying the number of ICP companies in their primary geography by the average 12-month contract value.
  • GTM; a market map of potential customers that fit your ICP with the key personas identified.

Our investment process is fluid and evolves based on the context of the investment round. The quickest we’ve made an investment decision is three days, but our typical timeline is three to four weeks.

The stages of our investment process are highlighted below:

  • First call; one of our investment team will have an introductory call with you to understand the market and persona you’re building for. This is an opportunity for us to dive deeper into your story, the pain felt by your buyer and how deep it is. It also allows you to ask us any questions you might have.
  • Successive calls; following a successful first call, we typically have two to four additional calls, diving into any areas of uncertainty and learning more about the market and how your solution fits their pains. The key question we ask ourselves throughout this process is, “How deep is the problem this team is trying to solve, and does their solution tie directly to the pains of their ICP?”
  • Investment committee; following our calls, the Haatch team will create a memo highlighting every aspect of our knowledge of your company. We’ll next come up with any final comments/questions, which we’ll ask you during a 45-minute session with the entire Haatch team. Following this discussion, we’ll make our investment decision, for transparency, 80% of the investment team need to have a resounding, yes.
