Playfair is a generalist VC fund with a contrarian approach to pre-seed technology investing. Based in London, Playfair invests across the UK and Europe with an intentionally high conviction, low volume approach: making 6-8 investments a year out of its third $70m fund and preserving time, capital and resource to help companies post-investment. Playfair has backed 70+ companies since 2013, including Thought Machine, Andela, Mapillary and Omnipresent.
