Why Smedvig Capital?

Smedvig Capital was founded more than 20 years ago by Peter Smedvig and Johnny Hewett. Its vision then, as it is now, was to invest in great management teams and work closely with them to help maximise the speed and certainty of growth. The money we invest remains all our own, principally that of the Smedvig family – now fourth generation entrepreneurs and led by Anna Margaret Smedvig.

We are passionate about finding and supporting the best Series A and Series B stage fast-growing businesses. We build strong relationships with our founders and are not afraid to roll up our sleeves and be there for our portfolio when needed through the inevitable ups and downs of growing a business. We’re a flexible source of capital supporting and accelerating ambition with a long-term view, often backing companies over multiple rounds all the way to exit.

What our partners say
