Green Angel Ventures makes equity investments in early stage companies which are solving the challenges of climate change. Our investment criteria are set out below.

Apply for funding

What are our investment criteria?

Companies applying for funding must meet these requirements…

Evidence carbon emission reduction

The company must have an innovative product or service which is able to demonstrate its effect in tackling climate change. This includes tangible impact such as nature-based solutions, biodiversity improvement, etc.

EIS eligible

The company should be eligible for the Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) - in other words, UK-based and eligible for advance assurance by HMRC (although this does not need to have been received before you apply).

Exit plan in place

The company must have a target plan for an exit within 3 - 7 years.

Investor ready

The company must be investor-ready, with a business plan, financial projections, an established team, evidence of demand, a clear competitive advantage and protectable IP.

MVP product

The company should have developed its product or service to at least MVP stage, or Technology Readiness Scale (TRL) 5 or above. The company can be pre-revenue.

Investment range

We typically invest between £200k and £1.5m, often co-investing alongside other professional investors. We are happy to lead or follow.
