We invest in people with ideas that have the potential to change the world.
We are Venture Catalysts.

The Change is a venture capital company based in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Our technology fund makes £100k-£2m investments in high-potential businesses.

We look for industry-disruptive ideas from founders that want to create a legacy (and are prepared to sacrifice to make it happen). By putting founders and their ideas through our rigorous in-house program, we deliver massive results on ideas most other VCs wouldn’t look at.

Our approach

Unlike other funds, after we invest, we focus heavily on the individuals behind the ideas, walking them through an incredibly challenging and deeply personal process. Because that’s what it takes to create real change.

We put every founder through a rigorous, four-step process with each step led by a different member of our team. Until you’re ready, the process is a continuous loop, with founders going through up to twenty iterations in 18-months to get their business right.

Inspired by the age-old adage to “be the change you wish to see in the world,” the fund focuses on projects that can create billions of pounds of value while making the world a better place.

Our team

We are individuals at the top of our fields and are fully committed to making a dent in the universe. Our community of founders, investors and mentors (Agents Of Change) is made up of people ready to lead our companies to success and be the change.

Our Agents Of Change have established multiple businesses and have experience transforming early-stage concepts into profitable companies.
