Telarik specialises in making and managing investments in start-up and early stage businesses with high growth prospects.
We invest time and capital in companies at an early stage, typically when founders have created at least a fully tested prototype of their product or service but are at pre-product launch or pre-commercialisation stage.
The value we offer lies in our ability to plan for growth, help you raise more funds and develop your corporate strategy.
