Our investment approach

We're investing in pioneering, UK-focused, early stage healthcare businesses in the HealthTech sector.

One healthy investment at a time.

What we look for

We want to hear from like-minded ground-breaking companies that focus on UK healthcare, who are ideally at Seed to Series B stage.


Our next investment partner has:


  • Big ideas and clear plans to execute with demonstrable product market fit and ambitious plans to scale
  • Operations in the UK
  • Where appropriate, the ability to improve the Simplyhealth Group's core value proposition
  • A track record to be proud of, industry credibility and technical kudos
  • Bags of energy and business drive
