Dorilton, the private investment firm that acquired Formula 1 team Williams Racing in 2020, is pleased to announce the launch of Dorilton Ventures to lead significant minority investments in early to mid-stage technology companies focused on data-centric segments such as enterprise IT infrastructure, data science, and cyber security.
Matthew Savage, Dorilton’s co-founder and Chairman, commented, “Dorilton Ventures brings the strength of our team and our approach – investing capital, time and expertise in long-term partnership with management – into the venture market.”
The Dorilton Ventures team includes investment professionals, data scientists, and IT infrastructure specialists. Dorilton Ventures will focus on delivering Dorilton’s capital, resources, and long-term partnership ‘DNA’ to support early-stage companies and their founders, operating alongside other successful investors to be a force multiplier for exceptional management teams.
Dorilton Ventures will initially target investments of $5–10 million. Still, as a funding partner throughout the lifecycle of a business, they may over-allocate to meet the needs of the most transformative companies.
Matthew Savage added:
“Our investments are not time-limited, nor are we subject to the concentration limits faced by many VC funds. We will follow our money so long as the company can deliver attractive returns.”
“As Dorilton expands its investment strategies beyond our traditional focus on middle-market private equity, we recognized that the Dorilton brand needs to reflect our ambitious future vision. As we launch new initiatives, our shared values of driving results by building relationships and staying humble remain at the core of all our investment activities.”
Dorilton has made multiple venture investments, including multi-lingual, geo-enabled social media and web-monitoring platform Babel Street; space-based radio frequency analytics specialist Hawkeye360; healthcare analytics platform Post Acute Analytics; and personalized tissue therapeutics company XenoTherapeutics.
The launch coincides with the group’s move to a single overarching brand, Dorilton, which will preside over standalone strategies, including Dorilton Ventures and the core private equity operation Dorilton Capital, while standing ready to accommodate further initiatives and sector specializations.prev View full list next
