Home / About Us


It's our founding belief that the investment opportunity in the software ecosystem is huge and growing. We are completely focused on this opportunity, and we have collectively spent our careers building expertise in this sector. Each member of our team is encouraged to develop their individual knowledge and skill, and to share it across our team and our portfolio. This is supplemented by deep expertise from across our network of proven industry advisors and consultants.

Committed to the software sector

Software has fundamentally changed the way businesses operate and the way people lead their lives – and the best is yet to come.

The UK and Ireland are global technology leaders: our software sectors are valued at over $1 trillion in aggregate, making us the clear leader in Europe and ranking third globally behind only the US and China. This accomplishment is powered by a deep talent pool of more than 100,000 risk-taking entrepreneurs and 3 million highly skilled employees, all of whom are either building their own products and IP, or facilitating the use of the world’s best software solutions.

FPE actively contributes to the growth of the UK’s world-leading software sector by supporting founders, business leaders, and employees to navigate the next stage of their evolution. Read more here.
