From a group of six impressive finalists, Outlier Ventures was awarded the one to watch prize for its drive to innovation and helping investee companies create sustainable partnerships that boost its ability to scale.


Guy Tolhurst, managing director of Intelligent Partnership, commented:


“Outlier Ventures clearly demonstrates the drive to be innovative, not only in the area of technology but also when it comes to helping its investee companies create sustainable partnerships that let them scale their businesses.”

The judges looked for tangible evidence of innovation and impact in changing and improving investment practices.
