Regionally is an upcoming investment platform built on the understanding that something needs to be done about the glaring gap in the UK corporate funding world.
Investments are too often directed via or to London to the detriment of UK regions. We provide the element of the financial plumbing that has been missing for many years.
Regionally is a private investment service, enabling qualified High Net Worth, Angel, Sophisticated investors and institutions exclusive access to professionally selected regional scale-ups. Our expert investment team and investor committee are committed to selecting the most ambitious regional scale-up investment opportunities offering competitive equity, debt and convertible loan deals to our qualified investor and institutional audience. We work with Regional Advisors who expertly assist selected companies to become investment ready. They conduct on-going monitoring post-investment to ensure scale-ups meet the high standards of Regionally and our investor members. Liquidity is key. Regionally prepares companies to be ready for the next stage of investment and supplies them to wider alternative markets, including AIM. We are also developing a private secondary market, launching in 2021.

Skyrora develop advanced orbital launch vehicles for the global small satellite market. As a launch service provider, the company conducts all phases of design, manufacture and launch operation. Skyrora’s experienced team of specialists approach each mission with rigour, ensuring payloads reach orbit quickly, safely and with minimal environmental impact.

Typical clients include those in Earth observation, meteorology, telecommunication and micro-gravity scientific research. A focus on simplified, quick and ecological access to space differentiates Skyrora from competitors. Skyrora’s proven propellant ‘Ecosene’, manufactured using waste plastics, metonymizes this approach and dedication to the company’s unique service offering. Skyrora has successfully tested a host of critical technology, including a full-static fire of the Skylark L vehicle. The company has attracted healthy interest from the press (BBC, Guardian, Telegraph) and investors.

Moscar Capital target companies at a specific stage of growth (post-seed), rather than being sector or geographically specific. They are very hands-on with their portfolio companies, getting them ready for a Series-A raise within 18-24 months. They look to fill in any gaps which could make attracting larger venture capital funds difficult, such as board formulation, improving internal systems and reporting/ analysis.

As Moscar target cash neutral companies their investment is used purely for Capex purposes to drive revenue growth. They can manage the Series-A raise, including promotion, setting up meetings and dealing with aftercare with investors.

Moscar is targeting a 5x return on investment over the 7-year duration of the fund. Year one’s NAV was 39%, and year 2 is looking to be even better, putting them ahead of schedule for a 5x return.
