Cornerstone Partners is an angel syndicate focused on investing in black and diverse businesses and communities in the UK. We focus our attention on this group because we believe that their entrepreneurial talent is often overlooked, in the traditional funding community and this leads to missed opportunities. At Cornerstone Partners we believe that there are two sides to Investing 1) investment of capital and 2) investment of time, knowledge sharing and upskilling of founders, businesses and organisations in our community.
We believe superior returns can be delivered by leveraging the inherent competitive advantage of diverse teams and our aim is to uncover them.
