About Us

Pardoe Ventures

Pardoe Ventures provides technical and business consultancy and sources of investment funding to AI Startups that will be the next generation of successful businesses of the future.

Our Story

Founded by Professor Andy Pardoe, Pardoe Ventures was started to find and support the AI startups that have something unique and innovative from a technology perspective.

Our focus is exclusively on Artificial Intelligence startups. When founded in 2018 we only worked with UK based startups, but now we work with Startups globally and have USA and European startups within our Portfolio.

We are the only specialist AI Ventures firm with deep technical and business expertise in the field, dedicated to support the next generation of AI companies.

Our Values

We have three core values that drives our focus and interactions


We believe that innovation is the core driver of sustainable value for any technology company. Our focus on novel business models, technology solutions and customer experience is most important to us.


We approach business with a highly competitive but respectful and fair perspective. We demonstrate this ethos with every interaction we have. 


We know that without collaboration we are unable to drive value to our portfolio companies and so are always inclusive with partners, corporates and advisors to ensure we are finding the best opportunities and advice for our cohort startups
