MY INVESTMENTS

I’ve invested in dozens of successful businesses over the past 20 years, across the UK and US, and I’m always seeking great new opportunities to help entrepreneurs’ dreams become a reality.

MY STORY

In my 20 year career, I have been a shareholder of 30+ businesses, achieved seven figure exits, and provided access to capital to over 250 businesses seeking investment.

I had my first million pound business at 23, before losing it all in 2008. I then took these learnings and rebuilt my life, allowing me to now operate as a full time investor and lender.

I have experienced every business high and low, making many mistakes along the way, and I now share this hard-earned experience with clients to help them make the most of their funding.

PITCH A SUCCESS

Foundation

In 2016, I was honoured to be able to help fund the operation of an amazing little boy named Alfie Smith, who has cerebral palsy.

I founded The Matt Haycox Foundation shortly after, supporting children in need of life-threatening operations.

INVESTOR

Business is my passion, and I have personally invested in 30+ ventures, helping them turn around or grow.

I invest in scalable business models and committed entrepreneurs, and use my experience to advise and support my investments to success.

FUNDER

I have an extensive network of investors, who trust my judgment and results, and have allowed me to provide access to capital for over 250 businesses.

I understand that speed is of the essence, so you will always get quick answers and no nonsense advice.
