Investment Criteria


The Fund will consider investment opportunities for businesses associated with the University of Edinburgh. Working with University Staff and Students, the fund will look to invest in a portfolio of growth businesses from the Edinburgh ecosystem. The fund would be able to provide capital for:

  • Start up or seed funding for companies seeking to commercialise an existing concept.
  • Development Capital for the growth of more established businesses.

The Fund can operate across a broad range of sectors, and looks to co-invest with other professional investors e.g. institutions, funds or Angel Syndicates.

Investments range from £50,000 to £250,000 depending on the stage of development and the financing requirement of the investee company. Further funds may be available for follow-on funding, but this will be considered on a case-by-case review.
