Investing in, coaching and advising early stage founders.


What does SouthWestern do?

At SouthWestern we invest in, coach and advise early stage founders. Our sweet-spot is the earliest stage: helping founders from pre-product up to around 50 people.

SouthWestern was founded by Tim Morgan. Tim started his career in financial services qualifying as a Chartered Accountant before spending 5 years buying and selling companies in M&A. Tim then became a technology entrepreneur founding Mint Digital and exiting Picklive and Stickygram. Tim is a financier by training that has worked at technology companies across product, growth and leadership. He’s helped dozens of entrepreneurs to start and grow companies.



Personal counsel and business advice to early stage startup founders. These are delivered through one-on-one sessions backed up with anytime adhoc support.


We advise boards across sectors including tech, film and property.
