About Blenheim Chalcot 

We are venture builders, not venture capitalists. We invest more than just funds; we invest our knowledge and experience, our ideas and our infrastructure.  

Founded in 1998 Blenheim Chalcot traces its roots back to netdecisions, the internet services group. Already back then we set out to build companies to transform industry sectors. And since then we’ve become the UK’s leading venture builder, with portfolio sales of over $460M, more than 3,000 employees, and a successful track record of over 40 companies.  

After seeing a growing demand for FinTech, Edtech and AI-powered companies in North America, driven by the powerful impact that they can have on both businesses and the general public alike, Blenheim Chalcot launched in the US in June 2018. This New York led expansion has extended the reach of Blenheim Chalcot’s venture building services, providing everything a high-growth business needs to scale successfully and sustainably.
