Sapphire Capital accepts applications directly and through trusted third-party intermediaries (such as Seed Mentors Entrepreneurs Limited). For any direct applications, Sapphire Capital will outsource an initial review of the application to one of the trusted third-party intermediaries if we believe that the application may be of interest to us (and consequently we will, therefore, share your data with them). They may charge you a fee for their initial review which will be confidential to us and they may seek further information directly from you.
Although Sapphire Capital does not charge any fees for considering applications, the third-party introducers (such as Seed Mentors Entrepreneurs Limited) who approach us may charge fees or seek equity for services they provide to their clients. Such arrangements do not involve Sapphire Capital.
PLEASE NOTE THAT IS USUAL AND SAPPHIRE CAPITAL WILL EXPECT TO TAKE EQUITY IN ANY COMPANIES WE ARE SUPPORTING WITH AN ENDORSEMENT (OF CIRCA 5% to 10%).
