Digital transformation

We’re in a truly revolutionary period of tech enablement as businesses look to the cloud and digital transformation to drive differentiation and competitive advantage in an increasingly global economy. In this fast-moving world, we’re excited by ambitious businesses and entrepreneurs that are looking to drive change and find ways of doing things differently.

Our approach

Since our first technology investment in 2000, we’ve been prolific investors in the sector. We’ve backed 14 software businesses, 18 tech-enabled services platforms and six cloud managed services and unified communications businesses.

Not all of these have been straightforward journeys, but we’re proud of our track record. We are ambitious and we want our management teams to succeed in the time they work with us. Make no mistake, Livingbridge set a high bar. However, share our experience, know-how and practical skill-sets to empower our investees to reach beyond what they thought might have been possible before we invested.

Our unique skillsets

We’ve thought hard about what you need to succeed. It’s why we’ve designed our growth acceleration team, a dedicated in-house resource that delivers value creation across our portfolio using a playbook built up over years. Key areas of support include: M&A target identification and evaluation; customer acquisition and retention in a digital world; insight and analytics; pricing; talent recruitment and assessment; and international growth. Whether national or international, organic or buy-and build, infrastructure light or heavy – we’re here to help.

So what does this mean for you?

If you’re reading this, there are probably two questions on your mind. Can I work with these people and will they add value to my business? On the former, you’ll never know unless you reach out and meet us. What we can say is that we want the journey to be fun as well as rewarding. On the latter, our track record in technology speaks for itself.
