Blackfinch - Firms fit to thrive

17 March 2021

Investing in any fledgeling or start-up business is high risk. That’s why the Blackfinch Ventures Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) aims to spread investment in up to 10 exciting tech companies. Rather than relying on a few firms to reap rewards, the chances of picking winners are much greater this way. And it means we can spread our passion and expertise between even more incredible companies.

  • Invest in a diversified portfolio of up to 10 early-stage tech start-ups 

  • Back companies with Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) principles 

  • Firms handpicked by our expert team 

  • Targeting high returns of between 3x and 5x

The Blackfinch team is made up of award-winning tech start-up founders, entrepreneurs and technology specialists. Together they have the knack of searching out the best and brightest firms worth investing in. Take a look at some of the incredible companies we’ve hand-picked over the past two years – start-ups that are thriving, even in the face of a global pandemic.
