Looking to Invest?

We offer investors the opportunity to invest in exciting, potentially high growth companies looking to disrupt an industry.

Two Ways To Invest

Invest in our Fund

Our Fund aims 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 partly mitigated through our selection methodology and due diligence processes, and by looking to leverage the HMRC's Enterprise Investment Scheme tax incentives.

Our Fund is structured as an Evergreen Fund, with capital deployed over 12-18 months per subscription. The Fund has no final termination date and subscriptions are open all year round.

Invest Deal-by-Deal

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 sometimes take on a Lead Angel role or 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.
