Two Ways To Invest

Invest in our Funds:

Our Funds aim to invest in a diversified portfolio of knowledge intensive companies, offering investors exposure to early stage investing without the need to stock-pick and commit management time.

Deal flow is driven by our 35-year track record and long-term partnerships with the UK government and business community.

Risk is mitigated through a selection methodology and due diligence built around Newable’s 500-strong investor group.

We look to leverage the government’s significant Seed / Enterprise Investment Scheme tax incentives for early stage investments.

Build your own Portfolio:

Many of our Investors have significant experience working with and investing in early stage companies. They understand their challenges and also their potential.

They like to build their own portfolio of investments and become part of the management or Board as the investee company navigates its growth curve. Many of our Investors have industry relevant skills and contacts they can use to drive value in investee companies.
Whilst this typically means allocating more time to stock-picking, performing due diligence and committing management time it also gives Investors the ability to shape the strategy of the investee companies.
