Episode 1 is the leading seed stage B2B VC in the UK.

They are a team of entrepreneurs-turned-VCs and PhDs building an tech-augmented approach to VC, combining decades of operating and investing experience with proprietary AI tooling that helps them find and select the best investments, at scale. While their AI alone performs substantially better than the average VC, they believe in a machine-human hybrid approach to investing.

With this human-in-the loop approach, they believe their strategy will outperform human-only or machine-only frameworks and consistently deliver exceptional returns to LPs.

They have invested in 4 Unicorns and are consistently a top quartile fund. They focus on enterprise software and in particular deep tech software which, again unusual for the UK, they have operating history in - Simon has a PhD in AI, Paul was Chief Strategy Officer for Cisco’s largest division and Adam has a PhD in machine learning and finance from Cambridge University.
