UK Fund To Help Technology / Media Firms

Chris Sheldrake

Andrew and Robert Rickman, well known in our local area of Oxford (and indeed Wiltshire) have recently launched a Euro 100 million technology fund wishing to invest in UK businesses with the potential for international expansion.

The Rockley Follow-on Fund is aimed at established technology companies and is looking at…

  • Energy
  • Sustainability
  • Media
  • Data Management
  • Healthcare

Their media sector is interesting, they say “The underlying trend is that Old Media businesses continue to buy New Media in a search for competitive advantage in a rapidly evolving business environment. Using technology to build new and readily accessible ‘bill-boards’ to drive accountability in advertising will build valuable businesses”

Andrew Rickman founded Bookham Technology back in 1988.
