We primarily invest in companies:
- Which enable better use of resources, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and/or protect the environment. Please click here for more details on our Priority Sectors.
- Which have the ability for large financial returns, and
- Where our specialist members can help the company's growth.
We invest in companies with a UK base, and which are eligible for the Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS). You do not need to have received EIS advance assurance before applying to us.
Whilst we want to invest in companies which have a positive impact, every business we back must have the objective of delivering good returns to investors.
Our portfolio is spread across the UK and location is not an issue and we will invest in businesses both pre- and post-revenue.
You must demonstrate evidence of demand for your products or services, and a strong understanding of the market you aim to address.
You need investment funding within the next six months - we generally will take between 2 and 6 months to complete an investment.
Typically we invest £100,000-£500,000, often participating with other investors, and we can act as lead investor or in a supporting role in a larger group.
