what is westbrooke rhythm?
Westbrooke Rhythm provides unique access to invest into a diversified global portfolio of early-stage, tech-focused companies primarily in the UK that demonstrate innovative and disruptive business models, with far lower minimum investment sizes than what are typically available for comparable investments.
