Techmodal Ventures

We invest in innovative ideas

Do you have an idea that could help
solve challenges in the Defence industry?

Techmodal began as just two people with an interesting idea 18 years ago. That idea has fed our rapid growth into a business of over 90 talented people who are consistently trusted by the UK Government to deliver data driven decision support. We’re now on the lookout to help develop more ground-breaking ideas that could be the solution to the Defence industry’s most critical challenges.

Following an exceptional launch last Summer, our Accelerator Programme has now opened for applications once again. We’re really excited to explore great ideas and help invest and develop local early stage startups. If you have a great idea, apply in touch today!

We are looking to partner innovative products or solution ideas that can potentially help solve some of our customers’ challenges within the Defence industry.

  • A great product
  • High commercial growth potential
  • Genuine, or original ideas
  • A desire for external support

Case Study: COL8

We entered into a strategic collaboration with Col8 after their successful application to the programme in the Summer of 2018. We helped to fund their efforts in cracking the video data management space in the Defence industry. We now work closely, jointly identifying and applying for new opportunities.

“The financial investment from Techmodal has put us in a strong place. One key thing about Defence is that it is a tricky market to enter, working with Techmodal has given us the access and opportunities needed to solidify our business. We have already submitted a joint bid to the MOD and really excited for the future of this partnership.”
– Charles Smith, CEO & Founder, Col8

Case Study: Surface RF

We entered into a collaborative agreement with Surface RF after their successful application to the programme in the Summer of 2018. Throughout 2019 we will work with them to put together a Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA) proposal to demonstrate a proof of concept to potential customers.

“The Techmodal Accelerator programme has helped us refine our business model and market. Importantly, being part of the programme has introduced us to contacts we would never have reached this quickly. We have spoken to people who have informed our company strategy and helped us to focus on what is needed in our prototype.”
– Andrew Collins, CEO
