Who We Are
Haatch is an award-winning pre-seed and seed investor focused on B2B SaaS businesses solving deep pains in the present and/or creating massive impact for organisations.
We’ve been building successful businesses for two decades with multiple successful exits from the founding team. Haatch was started in 2013 by Scott Weavers-Wright OBE and Fred Soneya, as non-traditional VCs from non-banking or consulting backgrounds. We saw an opportunity to build a dynamic fund, for Founders, by Founders. True to our culture, we hire people to be entrepreneurs within Haatch and give them the opportunity to try new things and be independent.
Haatch now has a portfolio of over 70 companies, which are valued at over £800 million between them. We are a lean but fast-growing company with big ambitions. We are looking for someone to join our investor relations team and be an instrumental part of our growth journey to becoming one of Europe’s most successful VC funds.
