Draper Esprit Change name to Molten Ventures plc

Molten Ventures

Draper Esprit plc (LON:GROW, Euronext Dublin: GRW), a leading venture capital firm investing in and developing high growth digital technology businesses, announced today that it has changed its name from Draper Esprit plc to Molten Ventures plc.

The rebranding is in response to the company’s transformation of recent years, accelerated company growth and recent inclusion in the FTSE 250, and a recognition of its unique role in the democratisation of venture capital. There is also a new website, moltenventures.com and a new motto, ‘Make More Possible’.

Make More Possible reflects Molten’s unique contribution as a listed venture capital firm. Molten invests in Europe’s best entrepreneurs and seed funds, helping them to make more possible. Further, because it is listed, the rewards of Molten’s investments make more possible for public market investors, not just a small club of LPs.

Martin Davis, CEO at Molten Ventures said:

“Our rebrand to Molten Ventures plc is rooted in the team’s long experience of transformation – both our own, and our successful efforts to help our portfolio do the same. It encapsulates that moment when VCs give their energy to help companies succeed and indicates what transformation means to us – for our portfolio, for our investors and for our society, we “make more possible”. Our new motto also reflects our unique contribution as a listed venture capital firm to identify and fully support the vision of Europe’s most successful companies and in doing so deliver value for our shareholders.”

The Group’s stock market TIDM (LSE: GROW, Euronext Dublin: GRW), the Company’s ISIN (GB00BY7QYJ50) and SEDOL (BY7QYJ5) will remain unchanged and existing share certificates will continue to be valid. The change of name will take effect on the London Stock Exchange and Euronext Dublin from 8.00 a.m. on 10 November 2021.
