We help founders grow revenue and scale internationally with media for equity investments.


Media for Equity is an investment model where mature startups are trading equities to media conglomerates in exchange for advertising space.

How We Work

Our goal is to get you funded as efficiently as possible, with terms that are right for your business and with a long-term, strategic investor.


We equip you with all the tools you'll need for a successful raise. We want to get to know your business inside out so we can use our expertise to best support you during your raise.


We work with your team to prepare or revise a killer pitch, a financial model, and an investment plan.


We will provide direct support in finding investors that are right for your fund size & sector, and are a strategic fit.


We can deploy specific media talent to help with the campaign evaluation, planning, creative productions and account management. Most of our Media for Equity fund partners provide this support at no extra cost.


We would love to continue to support you with future rounds. We also work with experienced founders in developing a new market entry strategy using follow on Media for Equity rounds.

TV works very well for what3words. We will continue growing in the UK, but we do want to scale up fast abroad. We are looking at Asia, as well as other European countries. One of the really appealing things for a company of our relatively small size is to collaborate with a partner such as Grai Ventures that can help us scale in several countries. That’s a big win for us.
