Gresham House Ventures invests in DDS Divisions, ActiveNav and Actfore

Thursday 30th May, 2024

Growth equity investor and longstanding Marriott Harrison client, Gresham House Ventures, has recently announced a further investment in data governance leader, ActiveNav and cyber incident solutions provider, Actfore, two divisions of Data Discovery Solutions. 

ActiveNav is a provider of data privacy and governance software solutions, helping large organisations manage their data in a seamless manner. Its software has been bolstered by the launch of its Cloud service allowing customers to control sensitive data, and ensure compliance and risk is in line with data privacy regulations. 

Actfore enables organisations to respond rapidly to regulators and protect individuals impacted by sensitive data leaks caused by data mining on cyber incidents. 

The deal follows two previous investments made by Gresham House Ventures into ActiveNav in 2019 and 2021 bringing the Gresham total investment in DDS to £12.6m. As a result of this investment, both divisions will drive product innovation, increase their market presence and strengthen relationships within their communities of customers.  

Jonathan Leigh-Hunt led the Marriott Harrison team acting for Gresham House Ventures, in what has been a busy dealmaking period for them. The team also included Bradley Heath (Corporate) and Iona Jones (Corporate).
