Policy & Regulatory
Flourish’s investment themes cover highly regulated areas that are complex and ever evolving. Our team has years of combined experience in the fintech sector and we share our deep understanding of the changing policy and regulatory landscape to inform go-to-market strategy and accelerated growth.
To generate brand awareness and build customer loyalty, we work side-by-side with founders and their teams on bespoke programs that support their startup journeys – from strategic media outreach and speaker coaching, to content development, event support, and digital marketing campaigns.

"Flourish acts on their commitment to support our journey. We actively seek their opinions because we know they will come with a perspective not offered by many other investors."

Founder & CEO, Swap

"The fact that Flourish cares about me as a person, in addition to the company, means a lot. You don’t get that a lot. In fact, I’m not sure I’ve ever had it."

Co-Founder & CEO, SeedFi


"Flourish has a unique approach to nurturing founders. Through development workshops and 1:1 interactions with the investment team, they help me cultivate self awareness and mental resilience.”

CEO, Mapan
