Tennis champion and world number two Andy Murray continues to back early-stage businesses as part of his strategic relationship with Seedrs, where he also advises the firm in areas of strategic interest, today identifying two ambitious British Tech companies, Perkbox and WeSwap, investing undisclosed amounts into each, a press release stated.
Murray said about the investments:
I’m continuing to grow my portfolio through Seedrs and have tried to choose companies from different sectors as much as possible. I was interested in Perkbox as I employ a number of people through my own sports management company, the 77 Group, as well as a number of independent contractors like physios, coaches and trainers. I’m sure they’ll all be wanting to hear lots more about Perkbox! WeSwap was interesting to me because I travel so much around the world – I thought this was a really clever idea and could immediately see the gap in the market for this business to work.
