Backing ambitious businesses across Nottingham and the East Midlands
Nottingham and the surrounding areas are home to a diverse range of knowledge-driven industries, including fintech, life sciences and renewables. Since opening our office in the city in 2017, Maven has established itself as one of the region’s most active investment managers.
Our regional investment team have backed dozens of ambitious, high growth businesses including environmental consultancy EarthSense, innovative IT monitoring software providers Senso.Cloud, and leading manufacturer of specialised human-machine-interface solutions, Cursor Controls.
Businesses we've supported across the East and South East Midlands
The sale of Cursor is an excellent return for both our VCT shareholders and our Investor Partner network which co-invested to fund the original MBO. Since then, Neale and his senior management team have continued to build upon the company’s global reputation in the market for technical expertise and innovation and Cursor is widely regarded as a leader in its field.
