About the Fuel Ventures EIS Fund

The Fuel Ventures EIS Fund is focused on bringing a unique hands on approach to UK early stage technology investment and has arranged investments into 20 EIS companies, with the average investment size ranges from £500,000 to £2 million. Fuel Ventures provides a unique combination of mentorship, experience and access to the investment required to drive a business and ideas to success. As well as attracting the support of international family offices and institutional investors, its portfolio has garnered funding from other industry leading VC investors.

Fuel Ventures provide more than capital – portfolio companies are supported by entrepreneurs and advisers who have exited businesses themselves. Many of the current portfolio are based in the same office as Fuel – the RocketSpace tech campus in London – meaning that Fuel can maintain a hands-on approach to building businesses and deliver value for their investors. Fuel Ventures’ portfolio of companies, which includes logistics on demand platform Shift, digital gift card company WeGift and social retail start-up Moteefe, has generated more than £100m in revenue since investment.
