Who We Are

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

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

We look for industry-disruptive ideas from founders who want to create a legacy (and are prepared to sacrifice to make that happen). By putting founders and their ideas through our rigorous in-house program, we create opportunities and deliver massive results that other VCs fail to achieve.

The company was founded by serial entrepreneur Gavan Wall and industry innovator Andrew Cuthbert. Having experienced the good, bad, and ugly sides of venture capital, they set out to create a holistic, people-centric fund that takes founders from a million-pound dream to a billion-pound reality.

With a passion for mentorship, transparency, and added value on a massive scale, The Change provides the opportunity for world-changing ideas—whether they come from a first-time founder or a seasoned entrepreneur—to reach their full potential. 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 and result in human flourishing.
