Blue Lake is a UK based investment company with the mission to scout, invest and help to unlock value in the undiscovered, high potential, startups.  We believe that now, more than ever, the talent is internationally based, not restricted to one city, country or culture.


We pay particular attention to founders and startups from the developing economies and regions of developed countries that often get overlooked. (Yes we do see ourselves as a bit of a cross between Jean-Luc Picard and Indiana Jones).

We consider startups from different sectors but we are especially interested in those that solve issues related to education, development and growth. These solutions may be individual or enterprise-level focused.

what Can we do for you?


Before a startup joins the Blue Lake we assess what help it may require and then a structure an individual specific programme. Some of the key elements that a startup can expect when joining Blue lake.

  • Funding

  • 3 - 6 months acceleration

  • Individual mentorship

  • Open Office Hours

  • London based office space

  • Bespoke support programme

  • Access to Blue Lake Network

  • Go-to-market support

  • Education

  • Joining a life long ecosystem


Our investment size ranges between £5,000 - £50,000. We do not have a one size fits all approach and discuss every startup's funding needs on an individual basis. 

Love at the First Sight?

We consider startups from all segments as long as you can answer yes to all of the following questions.

  • Is your startup internationally oriented?

  • Is there an opportunity for explosive growth?

  • Do you have an MVP?

  • Are you full time committed to your startup? 

  • Do you have an amazing team?

If you can answer yes to all of these questions we would love to hear from you!

We are great believers that diversity amongst founders while not always possible is always beneficial. We pay special attention to women-led startups and teams that benefit from diverse experiences, backgrounds and genders

Blue Lake Demo Day, December 2019
