IT and communications services provider

Glide connects people, simplifies life, and drives business forward across four key product areas: Broadband infrastructure, WiFi, utilities management and Browzer.

They are the UK’s leading provider of fibre broadband and connectivity to hard to serve markets such as multi-tenanted buildings and business parks.

We originally invested in the business – then ‘Cablecom’ – in 2007, when it was the market leader in providing networks to student accommodation. In 2013, the team sold down its majority stake but continued to support the business during what has been a period of transformational growth and acquisition.

We sold our investment to US infrastructure investor Alinda Capital in June 2020.
