Downing Ventures EIS


Downing Ventures EIS launched in September 2014 to provide the opportunity to invest in early-stage UK companies and to benefit from attractive EIS reliefs, including 30% income tax relief.

The fund focuses on innovative and dynamic technology companies that offer solutions in industries like e-commerce, education technology, life sciences, health technology and more.



Funds continue to be raised and deployed in early-stage UK companies when opportunities arise. In 2016, our Ventures team received and analysed an average of around 40 investment opportunities a month.

As at 30 June 2017, the portfolio consisted of 32 companies. You can learn more about the investments we have made so far by clicking here.
