Our story

We launched The Portfolio Collective in July 2020 because the world of work was changing fast. Professionals didn’t want to be tied to traditional employment – they wanted to embrace the freedom, flexibility and higher earnings a portfolio career has to offer. So we set out to help the workforce understand the possibilities of portfolio work and accelerate that transition as a mutually supportive community. 

That desire for independence has only grown stronger since then, with 71% of successful professionals no longer wanting to be tied to working at a single company in the future.

Our mission is simple. We’re here to help those professionals understand, launch, manage and grow successful portfolio careers.

We're growing fast...

The number one way we get new sign ups is through community member referrals and recommendations. People love the community, so they invite their friends. In the last year alone, new member sign ups increased by 56% and that was mostly driven by word of mouth (with some help from our SEO too!). 

Our net revenue is growing even faster. By Q2 of this year, our net revenue of £114k will be up 500% compared to last year, making us profitable by mid-2024. This is driven by membership and course fees, along with the demand for mentors, fractional professionals and other services provided by our members to clients. 

…and we help our clients do the same

A great example of our community’s ability to support entrepreneurial organisations is our work with CloudNC, an autonomous manufacturing company. Since 2021 we’ve helped shape their strategy and organisation. This includes placing 11 portfolio professionals and full-time leaders in their team to support their scale from Series A to Series B and beyond.

Meet some of our incredible community

We’ve got a growing community of over 11,000 members. Here’s a quick peek into some of the wonderful professionals that make up our community.

The most trusted source of independent professionals

Our client sweet spot is mid-sized companies (20-200 employees) and there are over 600k of them in Europe and North America alone. We want TPC to be the best source of fractional leaders, experts and teams to support those entrepreneurial ventures. This often starts by matching each client with a trusted advisor from our accredited mentor pool, which then leads to a diverse range of other work opportunities coming to TPC members.

It's safe to say we've got 'unicorn' potential

As the way of working continues to change and more individuals begin to embrace flexible work and portfolio careers, we want to be the go-to place to help those professionals succeed. We’re currently the world’s largest community of portfolio professionals and intend to keep it that way.

With revenue from memberships, courses, advertising and client support, TPC has the potential to generate annual EBITDA of over £100 million within 5-10 years, which would likely lead to a valuation of over £1 billion.

Invest before our Seed raise and receive a 10% discount

If you invest now via an Advanced Subscription Agreement (ASA)* your investment will convert into TPC shares at a 10% lower valuation than that agreed to by the next institutional investors. For example, if we were to agree on a valuation of £10m, then a 10% discount would mean that your investment would be at a pre-money valuation of £9m

If no institutional investors invest within six months of your investment, then your investment will convert into TPC shares at a company valuation of £10m (the current valuation). 

To help us manage the administration of multiple shareholders, the minimum investment is £5,000.
