The Love Ventures Fund I invests in early-stage companies which are leveraging technology in a post-Covid world to accelerate their growth. The Fund looks to partner with exceptional founders in the FinTech, PropTech and ConsumerTech sectors.
 
The Fund offers a unique opportunity to gain access to these fast-growing companies. The team is laser-focused on uncovering the next gems of tomorrow. The team has a strong background in identifying visionary founders and helping bring them from the seed stage up to series A. 
 
Investment Strategy
The Fund has a number of criteria that help us measure a company as a category creator, including:
  • The right team, technical capability and founder-market fit
  • Large Total Addressable Market (TAM) of at least £25Bn+
  • Validated and scalable business model
  • Proprietary technology
  • Probable Series A within 12-18 months
  • Follow-on funding & dilution
EIS tax incentives
The companies the fund invest in are expected to be EIS-qualifying, which makes Love Ventures Fund I EIS suitable for qualifying clients who would potentially benefit from the following tax reliefs:
  • Up to 30% income tax relief
  • Tax-free investment growth
  • Capital gains deferral
  • Inheritance tax relief
  • Loss relief
Please note: 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. See guide for further information.

Tax reliefs depend on individual circumstances. There is no guarantee however that the tax reliefs (such as SEIS and/or EIS reliefs, CGT reliefs or IHT relief) will be available on any investment made or that if it is initially available, it will not be subsequently withdrawn. Any references to tax laws or rates are based on current legislation, all of which are subject to change and are provided as a guide only.
