The Start-Up Series will next open for entries on Tuesday 01 September 2020.

During these challenging times caused by Coronavirus and the resultant lockdown and economic turmoil, we have decided to pause our monthly competition until September.

The Start-Up Series has been running since October 2016 and has seen £4.3 million being invested into the winners so far. We have made the decision to pause the competition Series because:

  1. We need to concentrate on supporting the businesses we already have in our portfolio – sometimes they are challenged by the current situation, sometimes they have new opportunities. But all take thinking and effort to work through.
  2. There has been an understandable pause in SEIS & EIS investing while the investors that trust us with their money work through many economic and social impacts of Coronavirus before making any investment decisions. We expect the funding context to be much stronger towards the end of 2020 and into early 2021 than it has been since March.
  3. It is likely that any business seeking funding also needs to work out what the impact of Coronavirus will be before finalising any investment.

Please leave us your contact details below and we’ll drop you a reminder when we re-open in September. We look forward to reviewing your entry then.

In the meantime, please stay healthy and best wishes for growing your business.
