UK’s MMC Ventures re-ups in Love Home Swap

The business has experienced nearly ten times growth since we first met the team a year ago and we continue to be really impressed with the speed of execution. MMC focus on backing British businesses that can succeed on a global scale – we have re-invested in Love Home Swap to continue building a best in class product and we think there is a significant global opportunity.”
