The investment he led into tech startup - Riverjack Crypto looks doomed when the notorious founder kills himself (and his Finance Director) in a bizarre car crash

Meanwhile the firm's suave lawyer, Tom, is permanently distracted by Lisa, Peter's delectable PA, while associate Edwin looks on in silent jealousy...
Henry, the firm's other London partner, just cannot avoid the temptation of any available piece of skirt.
Cavorting on a lascivious romp through London, everything seems tame by comparison once the team gathers for the strategic offsite. When everyone descends on a hotel for the meeting - and at night attempt to descend on each other - total mayhem ensues.
This is the world of venture capital - fully exposed
