INTERSECTION VENTURES is a venture builder focused on developing high potential business opportunities where applied collective intelligence will have the power to solve big consumer and industry problems.

What we do

We build and grow technology-enabled business ventures that have two things in common: they use the power of collective intelligence to change the dynamics of their industry and they create and capture substantial value with a robust business model.

We also make strategic pre-seed and seed investments in startups with a related technological portfolio led by outstanding people.


  • We develop and nurture ideas in-house
  • We use a systematic de-risking and experimental approach
  • We create and capture substantial value using collective intelligence


  • We invest up to £100K at pre-seed and seed stages
  • Collective Intelligence should be at the core of value creation
  • Our building platform can be used to accelerate the startup


We believe that the intersection of human and machine intelligence can solve existing and emerging problems and that’s why we combine the power of the crowd and the power of algorithms.

New companies are emerging at the intersection of machine and collective human intelligence; funding in this sector has multiplied nearly sevenfold from $45M in 2010 to $310M in 2015.


Group intelligence is a powerful tool with many applications. Our ventures harnesses this collective intelligence to build effective solutions to problems that benefit from increasing collaboration and better decision making.


Datasets created from real life interactions are used to teach our algorithms. Machine learning is put to use to continuously fine tune all human experience and create real value through efficiency and accuracy.
