"Journeys, like artists, are born and not made. A thousand differing circumstances contribute to them, few of them willed " Lawrence Durrell
"We are steadfast in our support of entrepreneurs and engage on topics such as People, Go-to-Market, Legal, ESG, Product and Technology leveraging our network and the broader Fidelity ecosystem to help companies to reach their full potential."

We understand that hiring quality people is the greatest barrier to growth for fintech companies. We partner with our portfolio companies to source and evaluate executives and to help guide founders on organisation design, coaching, development, and reward.

Even an award winning product does not sell itself. Too often we see fintechs falling into common pitfalls related to sales scalability. That is why we have partnered with market leaders in marketing and sales to support the development of great commercial teams and effective sales architectures that can optimise for scale, unit economics and repeatability.
Having Fidelity as an early customer can exponentially increase startups chances of success. We have the entrepreneurial skills, internal governance, and expertise to make quick investment decisions and help support on partnerships and adoption.
Today, more than half of our portfolio companies are partnered with Fidelity International. See some case studies below.
We believe FISV has a responsibility to proactively engage and build a more sustainable and inclusive fintech ecosystem. Using our platform to encourage and promote our values as we work with Founders is core to our ethos.
We advocate Mindful Growth and believe that ESG is not just the right thing to do, but that it can improve the financial performance of our portfolio. We aim to ease the burden on early stage companies hoping to achieve their ESG goals by sharing our expertise and facilitating collaboration.
