What is HQ UK?

HQ UK invests in startup and existing businesses, helping them to grow or scale.

We can help speed up the time it takes for a business to reach its milestones, or help it attract more clients

What happens when we invest?

  • HQ UK attach an idea or strategy to an existing entity
    • Together, we formulate a way to implement
    • It becomes a distinct New Business Area (NBA) or Joint Venture (JV)
    • The existing business grows and expands on the back of the NBA
  • We work out the best way to present and portray the NBA
  • Documenting and creating the systems and processes that are involved
    • Our aim is to utilise existing infrastructure inside and outside the business
    • Minimising risk
    • Increasing speed of implementation

Important investment criteria

Companies we invest in need to display they know what they are doing in their field.

There should already be an existing or working solution in place – allowing room for modification, extension or utilisation in a new way.

Our expertise

HQ UK benefit from experienced strategists, either internal or external consultants.
