Who is this for?

At KPMG Acceleris, we understand that no two startups are alike. That's why our team of experts works closely with founders to create customised venture funding strategies that align with your unique goals and vision. By leveraging our extensive network of venture capital and angel investors, we maximise your chances of securing the funding you need to drive growth and success.


We look to work with passionate founders from all backgrounds who are building startups in ESG, Biotech, Deep Tech and Proprietary Software. We prefer it if your startup is SEIS/ EIS eligible.

Seed Stage

We look to work with companies who are past their minimum viable product, have some early traction and are focusing on building their team and their strategy as they prepare for the next phase of growth.


We require a minimum fundraise of £500k, a highly motivated team, a clear and validated understanding of your competitive advantage and an initial draft of your business strategy and financial model.

What is the Process?

Our seed-stage fundraising advisory services are designed specifically for high-growth startups in the technology and innovation sectors. We assist companies with a thorough analysis of their funding requirements, assist in the crafting of compelling pitch decks and executive summaries and utilise our global network to identify the ideal VC investors and angel investors for your business. We then assist with navigating the negotiation and deal structuring to arrive at a successful completion.
