Business: An investment firm guiding startups through each step of their fundraising process.




Founded in 2017, Glasgow-based Raising Partners is an investment firm that guides startups through each step of their fundraising process, through expert guidance and direct connections with its wide network of investors. The company has a 98% success rate and has helped over 150 startups raise over £40M investment to-date. Raising Partners also runs an angel investor syndicate – Raising Partners Angels – that is committed to backing companies making a significant impact on people, processes or the planet.



Managing Partner and Raising Partners founder, Helena Murphy, describes the business as one that she wishes existed when she was starting up herself. Helena experienced first-hand the challenges of start-up funding when she, having successfully raised early-stage capital for her e-commerce company that she built after leaving university, received poor financial advice and ended up in £100,000 of personal debt and suffering from stress-related alopecia. Using this experience as motivation, Helena and her team are determined to ​level the investment playing field, demystify the fundraising process, and help deserving businesses flourish.

Providing end-to-end fundraising support for startups in 6-8 weeks – from advice on investment strategy and reworking pitch decks, to connecting clients with its syndicate of angel investors – Raising Partners demystifies and democratises the process of raising money. The team are experts in all things investment-related who have brought a much-needed specialism and expertise to the notoriously hard-to-crack investment landscape.
