Octopus Ventures are one of Europe’s largest Venture Capital teams. They invest in entrepreneurs who wish to make a significant, positive impact on the world.
They have no minimum investment. However, over the last couple of years, the smallest investment they made was £350,000 and the largest was £25 million.
Where appropriate, they will start investing at a seed stage with less than £1 million but, typically, their first investment tends to be between £2–5 million for series A deals – those ventures receiving their first round of financing after seed capital – and £5–15 million for series B. Their intention is to then follow their investments, and continue supporting the entrepreneurs they've backed, for years to come.

Note that while some organisers may accept applications from all around the world, you may still be required to travel to the host country in order to take part in the later stages of a competition for instance, or you may be required to live there for a period of time to take part in a funded programme (e.g. scholarship, incubator, accelerator).
Multiple host countries may mean that no travel is required.
