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. 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.

Please note, past performance is not a reliable indicator of future results and may not be repeated.

Investment in EIS Funds involves a high degree of risk and Investors could lose part or all of their capital invested. Investment will not be suitable for all investors. Past performance is not a guide to future performance and may not be repeated. The value of investments can go down as well as up. You should consider the Fund to be a medium to long term investment. The Company’s shares will be unquoted, which carries the risks of illiquidity, loss of investment and dilution. Tax reliefs received are subject to individual circumstances and there are no guarantees that Investors will receive or retain any tax advantages. The availability of tax reliefs depends on Investee Companies maintaining their qualifying status. Kin Capital is unable to give taxation or financial advice and strongly recommends private investors speak with a suitably qualified independent financial adviser.

Private investors will need to first contact us to confirm their status as a High Net Worth, Sophisticated or Restricted Investor before we can send further information.
