description
Notion Capital is a venture capital firm based in London, England, investing in early stage business-to-business (B2B), software as a service (SaaS) businesses.Notion was founded in 2008 by the brothers Ben and Jos White, founders of MessageLabs, along with business partners Stephen Chandler, Chris Tottman and Ian Milbourn. It has invested in high-profile companies such as Shutl. As of August 2015, its three funds have raised around $290 million.HistoryThe White brothers revealed plans to create the fund in October 2008, using around £20 million of the £100 million they made that month, from the sale of MessageLabs to Symantec. The brothers, with partners, had earlier built and sold the technology companies RBR Networks, eventually Cisco's largest distributor in Europe, and then Internet service provider Star Internet. The three companies reached revenues of over US$100m a year. The other founding partners in the fund, Stephen Chandler, Ian Milbourn and Chris Tottman, were all former executives from those companies; Chandler being MessageLabs' financial director as well as being an investment corporate financier at UBS; and Milbourn vice-president of corporate finance there. Tottman held positions at both MessageLabs and Star.Ben White explained:Jos White has said that the fund was inspired by MessageLabs' difficulty in obtaining investment. The initial fund was created in the Autumn of 2008.
