Derek Watson N2 Technology


N2 Technology is the first open-access digital network that connects companies raising capital and professional investors.

Through the N2 Platform we are able to support both sides of the value chain, from Seed to Series B investment rounds, instantly connecting relevant companies that are matched through our proprietary matching algorithms.

Our unique business model, void of transaction fees, hidden commissions or high introductory charges, means that we deliver a platform which is accessible for all companies, all of the time.

Our matching algorithms are built from the collation of the latest investor preferences, meaning that connections are based on who and what is relevant now, and not on past historical investments and deals.

Why we built N2

We created N2 to enable start-ups accelerate their outreach to investors, have meaningful conversations with relevant investors and ultimately secure faster funding and build the industries of tomorrow that will impact us all on a social, economic and technological level. We have over 50 years of combined private markets experience on both the buy and sell-side. We have observed first-hand the frustrations encountered by start-ups in their formative years. What became apparent to us is that traditional methods of finding relevant investors is slow and expensive and not fit for purpose.

During our time as investors, we also faced the challenge of being overloaded with irrelevant opportunities, and the unique challenge in consistently accessing quality deal flow.

Our mission is to make finding and connecting with relevant investors fast, easy and accurate. We want to empower entrepreneurs to focus on what they do best, building great companies. By providing investors with highly curated and constant deal flow, we hope to give them more time to diligence the best opportunities and support their existing portfolio companies.
