We are delighted to announce the appointment of Isabel ('Izzy') Fox as Molten's Head of Third Party Funds. This new strategic role underlines Molten's commitment both to innovation within the venture capital space and to expanding its impact through a variety of targeted investment funds which complement its publicly-listed core model.

Izzy joins Molten from Outsized Ventures where, as Co-Founder and Partner, she championed investments in pioneering technology startups seeking to solve the world’s greatest challenges for the future of the planet, health and society. Izzy has a proven track record of raising capital for groundbreaking ventures in areas such as automation, AI, quantum computing, and augmented reality.

With Izzy's appointment, Molten intends to make further progress in building its third-party assets under management and associated income, including via its syndicated Fund of Funds programme and other third‑party private funds strategies as political pressure continues to focus on attracting long-term pension capital into the venture ecosystem.

Joining Molten’s Executive Team and reporting into CEO Martin Davis, Izzy will oversee the fundraising strategies for Molten’s third-party funds, including those focused on Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) and Climate Tech. Her experience will bolster the firm’s unique talent to channel capital into critical innovations.

Martin Davis, CEO of Molten Ventures, said: "Izzy’s arrival marks a significant milestone in our strategy to build specialised funds that empower the next generation of tech pioneers."

Reflecting on recent strategic moves, Martin added:

“Our recent capital raise, purchase of a meaningful LP position in Seedcamp Fund III and our acquisition of Forward Partners were made possible by our innovative platform as a listed venture capital firm.

"Izzy joining us to spearhead our third-party capital strategy will continue to enhance the Molten platform, and further enable us to support transformative companies at every stage of their development. We are delighted to welcome her on board.”

Izzy shared her vision for her new role, saying

"Joining Molten offers a unique opportunity to amplify the impact of venture capital in transforming society through technology and comes at a time when there are many future growth opportunities for the next stage in the cycle. Having long been an admirer of Molten’s approach to VC, I am thrilled to join the Molten team and carve out this new role, focusing on fundraising that sustains long-term and meaningful innovation."
