Accelerated Digital Ventures.
In December 2016, LGC invested in Accelerated Digital Ventures (ADV), providing a cornerstone investment alongside Woodford Investment Management and the British Business Bank. ADV, a new and innovative venture platform, will seek to fund UK digital businesses across all stages of the funding cycle with the ability to scale internationally and emerge as global category leaders. ADV plans to invest an initial £150m in digital start-ups through its platform, offering access to capital, coaching, customers and corporates. Existing digital technology hubs will be targeted to create a network across the UK, particularly in the regions outside of London.
