Press Release

The Venture Capital team at Foot Anstey has advised lead investor Lean Investments and its AngelList Syndicate on its early stage investment into Edge Retreats Limited.

Edge Retreats offers luxury villa rentals in exotic locations around the world, with a bespoke personal concierge service.  From private chefs to superyacht charters, Edge provides a top end exclusive service.

Lean Investments is an early-stage and seed technology investment fund led by Tim Jackson and with a portfolio of 25+ technology companies.

AngelList was founded in the US in 2010 and it helped raise over $160m for over 400 startups via Syndicates in 2015.  AngelList syndicates co-invest alongside a lead investor, which on this transaction was Lean Investments.

Lean Investments was advised by Henry Humphreys, senior associate and Mitch Windsor, trainee solicitor.

Tim Jackson, partner at Lean Investments commented: "This was a deal that got from term sheet to a first draft set of documentation in under a week. It represented really fast work from the team at Foot Anstey, and what made it more impressive still was the fact that the docs were thorough and accurate, and the week in question was the final working week before Christmas, when lesser lawyers tend to be winding down and departing for the beaches or their ski vacations."
