Our value
Dawn
Our Series B was very oversubscribed, but we were drawn to Dawn owing to their team and experience. Dawn were great to work with during the fundraise, focused on points that would help them build conviction and with second to none communication. In a short timeframe they've turned into a trusted and valuable partner, connecting us into their excellent network.

Dmitry Tokarev, Founder & CEO, Copper
The Dawn team brings ambition, experience and a human touch. We are not making decisions and reporting to them; we make decisions side by side and this is due to the approach they have – it works. They've brought us access to a network we did not have before and it has opened a priceless channel for growth and partnerships.

Tim Ward, Co-founder & CEO, CluedIn
Since their first investment, Dawn has been a very supportive and strategic partner. They have participated in our funding rounds through both their flagship and opportunities funds, ensuring they have remained deeply invested in our success. As a European investor, they are somewhat unique in being able to support their companies from Series A to exit.

Florian Douetteau, Founder & CEO, Dataiku
Dawn has provided an unmatched level of challenge and support to Eigen. We have a superb working relationship with their team and they have had a huge impact on our journey. The firm is unique in the breadth of perspectives it brings to the table to support its management teams to scale effectively and deliver significant outcomes.

Lewis Liu, Founder & CEO, Eigen Technologies
Working with the team at Dawn helps us get to the heart of issues very quickly.

Magnus Nilsson, Co-Founder & Executive Chairman, iZettle
Dawn was our first–and subsequently a very important–institutional investor. They supported us through a period of transformational growth. During that time, Mimecast went from being a less than $10m revenue company to a global leader in the cybersecurity space with a successful IPO and great track record as a public company.

Peter Bauer, Founder & CEO, Mimecast
We have been working with Dawn since they led our investment round in March 2020, and they have helped us to carefully navigate the challenges of scaling a fintech SaaS business. The perspective they offer, and their wealth of knowledge in the space, have proven extremely valuable for all of us at OpenGamma – we’re lucky to have them on-board.

Peter Rippon, Co-founder & CEO, OpenGamma
Dawn is one of the few European VCs with deep expertise in SaaS, and their contribution to us has been invaluable.
