Backing Britain’s brightest businesses
Octopus Titan VCT looks to invest in companies that use innovative technology, have talented and ambitious management teams, address large market opportunities and demonstrate a rapid pace of growth.
Here are some videos showing a few of the businesses we’ve invested in: Eve sleep, myTomorrows, Secret Escapes and Swoon. Narrated by our Octopus Ventures team, these films demonstrate why Octopus Titan VCT is proud to back some of Britain’s brightest businesses.
These company examples are for illustrative purposes only. They should not be considered as an investment recommendation. Any personal opinions mentioned may change and should not be seen as advice or a recommendation.
The world’s most comfortable mattress
Eve is an ecommerce mattress retailer and brand. The company is focused on trying to create a frictionless buying experience for the customer by offering a simplified product offering combined with a hassle free and intuitive online sales experience. Eve focuses on a single product to reduce confusion for customers around the purchasing decision. This is supported by a free 100 day trial period as well as a 10 year guarantee. The ambition is to create a modern, creative and desirable mattress brand that is affordable yet aspirational.
Improving access to drugs in Development
Developing drugs to fight diseases, and getting them approved for use on patients, is a slow and complex process. By assisting with regulatory hurdles, myTomorrows streamlines the process of patients getting pre-approval access to treatments. This could potentially be life-saving for those patients who have exhausted existing approved options. Strengthened by the experience of the company’s management team, whose chief executive sold his previous business for $2.3 billion, myTomorrows is set to revolutionise an industry valued at an estimated $500 billion worldwide.
Hand picked hotels, members only prices
Secret Escapes is an exclusive members-only travel club offering discounted rates on luxury hand-picked hotels and holidays around the world.
High quality furniture at insider prices
Founded in 2012, Swoon Editions offers online-only designer furniture, direct to consumers, at prices significantly less than traditional retailers. It takes an entirely ‘non-traditional’ approach that cuts out inefficiencies. The design team launches new products every day, at rapid speed, and every design is tested. Swoon Editions then accurately predicts sales demand so that all items are sold out by the time they are ready to deliver. This ‘no stock’ business model cuts out unnecessary overheads and passes the cost savings directly to customers.
We also have a flyer which explains Swoon’s story in more detail.
Octopus Titan VCT key risks
Please remember that the value of an investment in Octopus Titan VCT, and any income from it, can fall as well as rise. You may not get back the full amount you invest.
Tax treatment depends on individual circumstances and may change in the future. Tax reliefs depend on the VCT maintaining its qualifying status. The shares of the smaller companies we invest in could fall or rise in value more than shares listed on the main market of the London Stock Exchange. They may also be harder to sell.
You should read the prospectus which is available here when Octopus Titan VCT is open for fundraise, before deciding to invest.
