If you are an ambitious founder with a great idea, we want to talk to you.


Our key themes



Modern lifestyles and the use of technology are becoming increasingly intertwined and inseparable. Technological innovation has created the potential for society to live better, be more productive and create a more sustainable future in a way that works with our planet and not against it.

What are you waiting for?

Sectors: Health Tech, Carbon Tech, Supply Chain and Logistics and PropTech & Infrastructure



The world of work as we know it has been transformed in recent years with the ushering in of remote and hybrid working, all in the pursuit of a happier and healthier workforce. The future of work will hinge on innovative applications for collaboration, data protection, financial empowerment, and employee wellness.

When can you start?

Sectors: Enterprise Software, Machine Learning/AI, Fintech and Ed Tech & Skills



We are redefining how we wind down, socialise, and spend quality time with each other. With a growing emphasis on mindfulness and wellbeing, an immersive digital universe is beginning to emerge that will influence how we interact, communicate, and consume information in the new age.

Player One, are you ready?

Sectors: Networks & Marketplaces, Online Communities, Web 3.0/Immersion and Social, Adtech and Martech

Hear from some of our founders...

Elizabeth Uviebinené

Founder of Storia (Play)

“I’ve long admired the Cornerstone team and now becoming a portfolio company is a dream come true. I believe their people-first approach will be a game changer for many founders, and this impact will be felt across the VC ecosystem. They understood my vision from day one, and I am very excited about our future together.”

Eshita Kabra

Founder of By Rotation (Play)

“The moment I was introduced to Cornerstone, I had a very good feeling about them. They have a very high level of conviction in the founders they back, and they have been incredibly supportive in our fundraising journey. I am very excited about our future together and view them as a founder-first investor.”

Sait Cham

Founder of Hutch (Live)

“It’s a pleasure to be working with Cornerstone, from our initial conversations with the team it was clear from the outset that they understood our vision for Hutch and the more we engaged with them it became increasingly apparent that they could add value and assist in growing the business in a myriad of ways.”

Anna Samuels

Founder of Boxx (Play)

“At Boxx, accessibility is one of the core values that underpin our brand. From the initial conversation with Cornerstone, not only did they understand our vision but their commitment to back underrepresented founders and their shared values was something that really stood out for us.”

A VC firm with a difference...

We are on a mission to create an open VC environment where tech founders from any background can approach us at any time and get helpful feedback on how to move their business forward.

Team assessment is key to our process and will often be the determining factor in whether we choose to invest or not. Our investment process places a greater emphasis on team diversity as we believe it is essential to creating the transformative businesses of the future.

Our firm is geared to support entrepreneurs at every stage of their journey. We invest from pre-seed through to pre series A and are set up to actively follow our money as you scale.
