Investing in Innovation
We invest in innovative, early growth stage, high-tech businesses: usually post- revenue companies with evidence of scalability.
These companies typically use B2B models and operate in IT and Internet, Communications, Electronics, Robotics or Med Tech sectors.
We can invest Â£1-5m in the first round and subsequently add further capital through follow-on investments.
For the first investment round, we always partner with an expert private investor (or 'IQ Angel'), who invests alongside the fund and commits their exceptional experience and time to the investee companies.
We also occasionally make small seed investments in exceptional teams. These teams are always identified by us directly or come to us through our own network or referred through an appropriate IQ Angel.
The IQ Capital II fund (Â£42m first close) started investing in November 2014, both IQ Capital Fund II and IQ Capital Fund I are created under the Enterprise Capital Funds programme.
