Helping small businesses grow has been an interest of mine since starting my own 10 years ago. It is incredibly satisfying when I see a hungry startup succeed because of their passion, determination and fearlessness.
Moscar only exists because of the network around me.
I’m most happy supporting our ambitious founders on everything from governance to technology.
Having set up a successful company, experiencing the associated growing pains, I find it very rewarding advising our companies how not to make these common mistakes and to grow sustainably.
I love investing in high performing entrepreneurs and watching their companies grow. I find this most exciting as they begin to hit their stride just before Series A.
Leo and Tim attend the same school. They are in different year groups, so they don’t pay each other much attention.
18 years later, (after successful, entrepreneurial careers) they cross paths again, sharing their keen interest in the world of start-ups. They compare how many ‘fails’ they’ve backed. Fortunately, they can peg more ‘successes’ to their names.
They quickly work out they share the same investment principles but possess completely different skills, so they founded Moscar Capital and become partners. Tim tackles spreadsheets whilst Leo ‘knocks on doors’.
Moscar add a third seat to its Investment Committee.
Both excited and nervous, Moscar’s inaugural venture fund is officially launched!

First-time funds struggle to raise capital globally, but the compelling deal flow keeps coming! Leo and Tim don’t want to miss out on the opportunities of a ‘vintage’ year, so they spend time brainstorming on the tennis court, perfectly socially distanced. Moscar now has four portfolio companies.
The portfolio grows to nine exciting companies!
