About us

Leo Davies

Managing Partner

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.

Tim Marchant

Managing Partner

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.

George Pearce

Investment Associate

Searching for the companies of tomorrow is tremendously exciting. I’ve been lucky enough to work with some of the world’s largest companies and brands, which allows me to share this knowledge with our portfolio companies to ensure they can bring their visions to reality.

Barnaby Cardwell

Investment Committee

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.

Tim and Leo

Leo and Tim attend the same school. They are in different year groups, so they don’t pay each other much attention.

2018

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.

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.
