We have significant experience in scaling up early-stage companies, in-depth understanding of the market, proven track record in sales channel development and a strong technological DNA.
Breed Reply is not an accelerator or incubator. We invest at early-stage and expect companies who are pitching to us to already have an MVP or to be just entering the market, as well as a strong team.
We are based in the UK with offices in London and Milan.
We are part of the Reply Group, a leading consulting, systems integration and digital services company with a solid tech expertise and market presence all over Europe and the USA.
We want to select the smartest teams working on IoT enabled businesses, helping them grow with intensive support for the first twelve months. We will work hands-on with them to build a long-term relationship in order to scale the business through a strong go-to-market strategy supported by Reply’s network. We will leverage the strong technological DNA and the deep expertise of Reply in the Internet of Things and applications.
We are searching for outstanding teams in early-stage companies with a clear understanding of their customer needs, a strong technical vision and the ability to execute. We are concentrating on IoT enabled businesses.
Our geographical focus is mainly Europe and the USA. We will look at outstanding companies from other continents if the opportunity arises.
No, your team does not need to relocate to London. However, we do offer desks in London for doing business in the UK and work with us face-to-face.

Each deal has unique characteristics. In general, we tend to invest at early-stage, for a minority stake in the company.

We are an early-stage investor and expect a company to have a solid team and MVP; however, on very rare occasions we accept outstanding idea and individuals or partial teams at a very early stage.
