Peter Dubens launched Oakley in 2002 with the vision to create the ideal partner for ambitious founders and management teams. In 2007, Peter raised Oakley’s first fund together with David Till, backing fellow entrepreneurs to help them realise their full potential. Our entrepreneurial heritage continues to define us today. We work with like-minded businesses, sharing our time, resources and network to help them succeed in a changing world. We back outstanding European businesses across our core sectors of Technology, Consumer, and Education.

Who we are

Repeatable success

We benefit from repeat partnerships with select entrepreneurs- in some cases we’re working together on our third or fourth deal with founders we backed in our first fund. We complement this with deep sector screening, building on previous, repeatable success stories to identify new opportunities. We then apply proven value creation strategies developed over twenty years of investing.
