Our Difference

Investors, Technologists, Operators, Entrepreneurs.

Pharaoh is genuinely unique in the world. Our impact goes far beyond financial investment. We work tirelessly to align ourselves with your business, to deliver future-focused strategies tailored to the needs of a growth business.

Our investing strategy is flexible and patient. We’re independent and privately funded.
This means we operate outside the typical PE funding cycles, allowing us to focus on a long-term vision rather than short term financial hurdles.

Our Difference

Pharaoh has a proven track record of success.

Under founder Grant Nicholson’s leadership, Pharaoh Capital has turned the vision of being a force for good into reality. In an age of energy uncertainty and complexity, Grant believes in the transformative power of acceleration capital applied to innovation. His proven record of success, as an entrepreneur and investor, is testament to the strength of this conviction. With a dynamic, hands-on management style, Grant is a stronger believer that financial investment should leverage both the expertise of a company’s executives and his personal experience of scalable growth.

Meet the Team

Knowledge and ideas are nothing without the capital to bring them to life. At Pharaoh we want to work with the brightest and the best: we bring finance and business development expertise to cutting-edge technology or innovation. Coupled with energy and passion, I truly believe that the Pharaoh formula has the power to transform lives.
