Don't invest unless you're prepared to lose all the money you invest. This is a high-risk investment, and you are unlikely to be protected if something goes wrong.
If you’re a UK business raising your first or second round, we would love to hear from you. Ascension can lead rounds or follow alongside other investors via our S/EIS Funds or Social Impact Funds (the Fair By Design, Good Food, Conduit and Life Sciences Funds). We've also built the Ascension Syndicate Club, a group of early-stage angels that co-invest in deals alongside us.
Our goal is to partner with you to accelerate growth towards Series A and beyond.
Ascension runs a number of UK funds from Seed to Series A, and is happy to lead rounds or follow alongside other funds or angel investors.

We provide crucial post-investment support for early-stage founders, offering the tools and relationships needed to scale their businesses.
Our community gathers frequently online and off to share learnings, inspire new ideas, and tap into the collective mindshare of the Ascension network.
Over the years, we've been fortunate to partner with people who have defined what success in tech looks like. If we can't directly help with something, we probably know someone who can.
Across our physical and virtual investor showcases, workshops, social events, and our annual summit, we facilitate knowledge sharing and new connections, through our community driven approach to portfolio management.
