Where requested, we support rapid geographical expansion, drawing on the individual country specific experience and the deep long-term networks of our trusted advisors and our value add team.
Rapid growth can create operational challenges. We support, on request, improvements across functions – S&M, tech, ops, people, finance, data, and ERM. We also bring together C-suite executives to share best practices.

Principles of Partnership
At the heart of our business are our business partners: the entrepreneurs and management teams we back; the investors in our funds; the advisers and intermediaries we work with and the banks and other lending institutions. We are fully committed to responsible investing and are a committed signatory of the UNPRI.
We only work with strong, entrepreneurial management teams. We take an active and supportive, partnership-led approach. We strive to build world-class businesses to generate superior returns for our investors.
We are a relatively small, focussed team of investors and experienced operators. The entrepreneurs we back deal directly with decision makers. They are not required to endure pointless bureaucracy.
Our investments are founded on partnerships. We make decisions through consensus in an open and transparent manner.
Our interests are aligned with our investors and those we back. We invest a significant portion of our own personal capital alongside our funds.
Vitruvian Partners was founded in 2006 by a team of experienced investment professionals.
We have extensive experience of investing across multiple sectors and expanding businesses internationally. We are particularly expert in supporting European countries in their global expansion.
