The British Robotics Sidecar Fund (the "Fund") seeks to back high-growth robotics, artificial intelligence and automations companies delivering large scale productivity improvements through autonomous technologies at the intersection of the digital and physical world.
The last decade has seen global productivity fall, natural resources be depleted and skilled labour pools contract in the developed world, despite rising labour costs and consumption levels. Against this backdrop, Britbots believe that autonomous technologies will provide the principle avenue for companies to improve their productivity and profitability.
We look for entrepreneurial teams building businesses with the potential for lucrative exits. Once the Fund has invested, each investee company will be mentored by High Growth Robotics Limited who will provide the investee company with an experienced, proven entrepreneur with a track-record of creating a valuable high-tech business.
