Richard Shaw


I am a Partner and lead GCP’s investment activity in the Technology sector.

I’ve been with GCP for 12 years’ now and am really proud of our fantastic team and our genuine partnership approach to investing. I currently work with the teams at Plenitude Consulting, Bridewell, and Indigo where I am privileged to be able to support the exciting growth plans of the fantastic entrepreneurs we have partnered with.

Other recent investments have included Cubelogic, Infinity Works, Arrow and Flydocs where we helped with a range of strategic initiatives including accelerated scaling and organic growth, talent development and board evolution, international expansion and buy and build.

I’ve spent the last 20 years working with growth companies across the UK through advisory, M&A and investor roles.

I’m passionate about business growth and technology and so outside of the day job am also involved in mentoring several tech start-ups and combine all of this with a busy family life where I’m married with 3 children, I manage my daughters football team and try to get out cycling and snowboarding whenever I get the chance!
