Clue, a SaaS Investigation and Intelligence Platform, Announces £5m Strategic Growth Investment From Frog Capital
Clue, a SaaS platform for managing investigations, today announced growth investment of £5 million from Frog Capital, a leading investor in European scale-up software. Demand for Clue has more than doubled over the last two years, driven by co-owners Clare Elford, CEO, and Thomas Drohan, CCO. From its roots in policing, the platform is now used across government, private and non-profit sectors to investigate cyber-crime, fraud, child protection, corruption, environmental crime, cheating in sports and much more. Clare and Thomas are joined on the board of directors by Nick Harber, CFO; Mike Reid, Senior Partner at Frog Capital; and Adam Hale, Chair of the ScaleUp Institute, as Chairman.
Clare Elford, CEO, said: “The world of intelligence and investigations is no longer constrained to policing, there is much wider application. Organisations are under growing scrutiny, finding themselves more susceptible to threats and with a much greater duty of care towards the vulnerable.
“Clue has productised decades of investigation expertise into a platform that empowers intelligence officers and investigation experts to achieve successful outcomes. So many of those dedicated to preventing harm and seeking justice have to deal with an overwhelming volume and complexity of data. Still reliant on legacy systems, or even spreadsheets, this is a sector primed for digital transformation.”
Thomas Drohan, CCO, said “With this investment, we will strengthen the capabilities of the platform with further AI and ML capability, automation, data insights and business intelligence, while continuing to support and build our user community. Frog have a formidable track record, with an impressive team who we are looking forward to working with to deploy the Scale-up Methodology and drive business growth and a solution to better serve the market.”
Mike Reid, at Frog Capital who joins Clue’s board said: “Across the industries that Clue serves there's a deep-rooted frustration at the lack of good enough tech to allow people to do their investigative work as efficiently and thoroughly as they need. For too long there's been a staggering underinvestment in how investigations are done, resulting in missed opportunities and slow outcomes for hardworking investigative teams and the people they serve.
“Clue's technology is genuinely delivering very significant clients a step change in how they manage and resolve incredibly complex and sensitive investigation cases. With Frog’s investment and experienced team of operators, Clue can accelerate their incredibly positive organisational and, critically, social impact in the key fields of policing, child welfare, financial crime amongst many others.”
Clue’s new Chairman, Adam Hale, said: “'I first met Clare and Thomas just before the pandemic and was really impressed with what they had built and the magnitude of customer problem that Clue solves. Since then, working with the ScaleUp Group, they have raised value-added SaaS growth investment from Frog Capital. I have known Frog for many years and am delighted to become part of their portfolio. I'm also really excited to work with Nick Harber again. I studied Computer Science in Bristol in the 80s and love coming back to a city set to support high growth organisations such as Clue.
“Now is the 'end of the beginning' for Clue and the start of the path to market leadership. From speaking to customers, I can hear how invaluable Clue is to them. There is so much opportunity and I'm thrilled to be part of it.”
Clue is a cloud-based investigation case management and intelligence platform that enables organisations to prevent harm and secure justice by building intelligence and quickly progressing investigations in the face of evolving threats, increasing volumes of data, and the need for multi-agency collaboration.
