Fearless Adventures closes first investment round to help founders expand and exit

Fearless Adventures, a Manchester, UK-based growth vehicle for direct-to-consumer (D2C) start-ups, co-founded in 2021 by three stalwarts of the British start-up scene, has completed its first investment round, bringing together a team of 14 highly successful entrepreneurs.

Investors include: Steve Oliver, Co-founder and Group CEO of musicMagpie; James Cox, co-founder of Simba Sleep; and tech-entrepreneur Alex Packham, who recently sold his company ContentCal to Adobe.

Fearless Adventures offer full-service support to its portfolio companies, including strategic expertise, best-in-class digital marketing capabilities, and talent sourcing support to rapidly accelerate the growth of their investments.

With five start-ups already onboard since Fearless Adventures launched in October, including Swim Society and the £6m revenue natural pet food business Pets Purest and a strong pipeline of new opportunities, Fearless Adventures aims to complete a further five investments by the end of Q2. Nearly all of the investees are female-founded or co-founded businesses.
