GameTech Ventures believe that the audience and innovations which will create the next generation of global technology companies will come from the world of gaming. As gaming continues to grow, games technology is moving far beyond traditional game experiences in order to disrupt the worlds of social media, communication, events, sports, fashion, eCommerce and more, pioneering the path towards digital worlds and the metaverse.
GameTech Ventures are a team of entrepreneurs, operators and financial professionals with extensive sector experience, investing at an early stage in the technology, businesses and founders that are building towards this goal.
The Fund will seek to invest in early-stage companies that are pioneering the future of our digital lives through gaming technology and the gaming audience. GameTech Ventures prefer companies that are building proprietary technologies but will engage with those using cutting-edge technologies in novel ways.
SEIS & EIS tax incentives
The companies the fund invest in are expected to be SEIS-EIS-qualifying, which makes Gametech Ventures suitable for qualifying clients who would potentially benefit from the following tax reliefs:
- Up to 30% income tax relief (or 50% for SEIS)
- Tax-free investment growth
- Capital gains deferral (or 50% capital gains tax exemption for SEIS)
- Inheritance tax relief
- Loss relief
Please note: SEIS-EIS tax reliefs are only made available to investors because of the higher risks associated with investing in early-stage companies. Also, the availability of tax reliefs will depend on the investor's personal circumstances, and tax legislation can change in the future.
