Our Story

Venture Finance Management was set up by our founders, Dom Talbot and Oliver Cooke who met playing for the same football team. 

Working in both Accounting practices and business partnering roles, they saw the opportunity to work with closer with SMEs to help them achieve their goals and ambitions.

So, in 2020, during the global pandemic, Dom and Ollie finally took the plunge and Venture Finance was born. Fast forward to the present day, Venture has gone from strength to strength. Working with some world class businesses whilst growing a dedicated team, in the heart of Liverpool City Centre. 

We’re very excited to see what the future holds!

Meet The Team

Oliver Cooke

Co-Founder & Commercial Director

Oliver is our Co-Founder and Commercial Director, after spending 10 years working in Accountancy Practices and Finance Business Partnering roles whilst becoming a Chartered Certified Accountant, he co-founded Venture to provide business owners with an outsourced finance function.

“There was a gap in the service provided by traditional accountants to smaller companies compared to larger companies with a full finance function. Growing SME’s need a more rounded finance function and access to financial advice compared to bare minimum compliance but don’t have the resources to employ a full finance team”

Outside of Venture, Oliver likes to spend time with his family, play football and go to the gym.

Dom Talbot

Co-Founder & Operations Director

Dom is our Co-Founder and Operations Director.

Personally, Dom has over 18 years’ experience both in the Public and Private Sector. Initially working for HMRC, where he acquired AAT and Taxation qualifications. Roles and experience included Personal and Complex Taxation, Risk and compliance in the Construction Industry Sector and Senior Operational Management Roles – leading on projects and other Government campaigns involving Personal and Complex Taxation legislation changes. Following on, Dom ran his own independent Business, providing bookkeeping services to Small Businesses and Sole Traders.

During the pandemic, Dom, and Oliver - who had been friends previously, identified a gap in the market for growing businesses who were missing out on key accountancy services. Not long after, Venture Finance Management was born.

Outside of life as a Venturion, Dom loves spending time with his wife, Linzi and two daughters, Izabella and Gia. Dom also likes going out with friends and Crossfit training.
