Private equity club makes first big investment A Bristol-based private equity club completed its first investment in 2017.

Bristol Private Equity Club (BPEC) was founded by six influential and successful entrepreneurs in May 2016 and has provided £425,000 of investment capital and a Non-Executive Board Director for tech start-up YellowDog Limited.

In total the club has 32 members – all entrepreneurs with substantial business experience and capital available to invest in growing businesses.
Based in Bristol, YellowDog is one of the South West’s hottest start-ups, recently winning an Oracle award for innovation in cloud computing.

Within 18 months the company has gone from incorporation to having some of the world’s leading architecture and animation companies on its books. YellowDog Founder and Managing Director Gareth Williams (pictured), said: “I’m delighted that YellowDog has the support of the Bristol Private Equity Club. Not only their investment but their wealth of experience will really help YellowDog accelerate its growth over the coming months and years as we prepare for expansion into new sectors.”
