Cambridge Capital Group (CCG) is a private investor group focused on early-stage disruptive technology businesses.  We seek to invest in companies that have the potential to deliver attractive capital returns within 5-7 years. The Group was founded in 2000 and its unique structure and focus has proved highly successful for members. CCG has a well established position in the Cambridge and wider high technology investment market, built up over 18 years.

The investment process is coordinated and deal flow is managed although angel members act on their own account. During 2016 our members enjoyed four successful exits including the highly profitable sale of Swiftkey to Microsoft for $250m.

Members are successful entrepreneurs; retired professionals; private investment companies and family trusts. We have more than 80 members with a mix of local, UK and offshore investors.   New applications from prospective members are welcome. Four corporate sponsors support our programme of quarterly presentation events.
