The Oxford Innovation EIS Growth Fund

Offering the opportunity to invest in a portfolio of promising technology companies in Oxford and the broader Oxford Innovation network in the UK, with the potential to achieve significant tax-free capital gains. 

Oxford Innovation has been supporting and incubating early stage companies for over thirty years. This includes through our network of innovation centres, the provision of business coaching services, and funding support through our investment division, Oxford Investment Opportunity Network Limited (OION Ltd). We are therefore excited to launch a fund that will apply this knowledge and experience with the aim of finding and supporting the next generation of high growth companies.

The focus of the Fund is to identify promising technology investment opportunities for capital growth within Oxford and the Oxford Innovation network across the UK and to combine this with support from business coaches and angel investors. The geographical focus will be on the Oxfordshire region, with the scope to invest in other technology companies in the UK that meet the Fund’s investment criteria. Further details can be found in the Fund's Information Memorandum.

Our approach will make use of our extensive network of entrepreneurs, angel investors, sector experts and business coaches to help with sourcing and selecting the investments that the Fund will make, in supporting our portfolio companies to grow and in enabling these companies to exit profitably.
