VentureFounders is a UK-based equity investment platform designed to make Angel and venture capital-style investing more accessible, affordable and transparent.
We believe that this market should be open to all who can afford and understand the risks associated with early-stage investment. As an investor through VentureFounders, you can invest from a minimum of £5,000 (min investment amount may vary deal to deal) in some of the UK’s fastest growing and most exciting companies.
Credible experts and investor protection
Our investment team is comprised of professionals with backgrounds in corporate finance, venture capital and private equity. They source, execute and monitor each investment opportunity presented and ensure that every investor benefits from the same opportunities given to the lead Angel investor or venture capital firms participating in the fundraise. This is possible through our nominee structure, which allows individual investors to be represented as part of one, large collective voice.
Plenty of opportunities to meet in person
Although all of our investment opportunities have been though a thorough due diligence process, it is still the investor’s choice to pick which businesses they would like to back. Therefore, we think it is important to always give our members the chance to meet the management teams behind the investment opportunities, so they can ask questions and form their own opinions about whether to transact.
Co-investing with the professionals and tax benefits
The majority of our investment opportunities are offered in collaboration with leading venture capital firms or Angel networks with established track records and sector expertise. The result is a curated range of structured opportunities in early-stage, scalable and high growth businesses, most of which are EIS (Enterprise Investment Scheme) qualifying.
Easy online transactions
VentureFounders operate a simple investment process through our online portal and, after the opportunity has closed, we give shareholders the essential tools they need to have full insight into what’s going on in their portfolio.
We’re in it for the long-term
We passionately believe that fulfilling a round of investment should not be the end of the journey, and that a partnership should continue between management and stakeholders. We have a long-term commitment to our entrepreneurs and a wealth of experience to accelerate growth at every stage of the investment journey.
VentureFounders is a meticulous, informed, fair and far-sighted investment platform that stands out from the crowd.
