Martlet, the investment arm of the Marshall of Cambridge group, is now over six years old and has invested over £5 million in 40 deep tech startup companies. We have completed over 90 transactions including follow-on rounds, almost all of which were at a higher valuation. Over 75% of the companies are now revenue generating, with several increasing sales by over 3 times per year. Within our portfolio, over 400 new jobs have been created and many have already started exporting. We have had 2 positive exits and 7 failures.
As part of the Marshall Group (encompassing aviation, aerospace and commercial/consumer vehicles), with over £2 billion of sales, employing over 5000 people, our investees may have the opportunity to work with our operating companies. In addition to capital, we can offer support, experience and a network of contacts. Peter Cowley and a small group of senior Marshall executives assist in choosing appropriate investments.
