What is the aim of this fund?
"The Fund seeks to invest in and provide support for UK based robotic start-up."
Dominic Keen, High Growth Robotics Limited
The Fund will seek to identify attractive investment opportunities that demonstrate four important attributes:
(1) passionate, credible entrepreneurial management teams;
(2) credible business concepts and strategy;
(3) a reasonable level of business risk; and
(4) attractive potential for lucrative exits.
Once the Fund has invested, each Investee Company will be mentored by High Growth Robotics Limited who will provide the Investee Company with an experienced, proven entrepreneur with a track-record of creating valuable high-tech businesses.
The British Robotics Sidecar Fund offers investors the opportunity of investing in potentially fast-growing robotics companies in the UK whilst significantly reducing the inherent risks involved in funding early-stage businesses. It does this by both: focusing investment solely on robotics businesses where investors are eligible to take advantage of the SEIS or EIS schemes; and also by spreading the investments made across a range of companies and sectors so that investors can benefit from a portfolio approach.
