Conviction is a partnership of like-minded, passionate and diligent professionals. We are a small but dynamic team that values accountability, entrepreneurship and openness.
Conviction is a venture capital investment group founded in 2017 by two co-founders, Andrew Jenkins and Jeremy Middleton, CBE. The group is comprised of High-Net-Worth Investors and Family Offices. Andrew is an experienced venture capitalist with a background in asset management, investment banking and trading. He was a lead financier in Mimecast, now a Nasdaq-listed business, where his group of investors generated significant, unicorn grade returns.
Having co-founded Homeserve plc, a FTSE 100 company, Jeremy is a serial entrepreneur and professional investor. Jointly, Andrew and Jeremy have been successfully investing in high growth software companies since the early noughties. Over the years their investment network grew and matured leading to the birth of Conviction. To this day, Conviction’s ethos is rooted in its investment network, private direct investments and end-to-end flexibility.
