Fuel Ventures SEIS Fund

Investing in fast-growing technology businesses.


What is the aim of this fund?

"It is my belief that we are in an advantageous position to build global businesses in the technology sector."

Mark Pearson, Fuel Ventures

The Fuel Ventures SEIS Fund will build upon our track record of sourcing and investing in companies with the potential for fast-growth. We will utilise our extensive deal-flow to invest in early stage companies that benefit from SEIS tax relief and that have the potential to receieve future funding from our established EIS funds. The Fund will continue our strategy of investing in rapdily growing sectors such as marketplaces, software and transactional businesses. By identifying and investing in such companies, I believe the Fund can potentially deliver exceptional returns to the Fund’s investors
