The fund will focus on areas such as music, TV, film, publishing, radio and online video. It will invest in content production and delivery in multiple platforms, live events as well as enabling technologies that support them, advertising and marketing, gaming/esports, virtual reality, talent, publishing and knowledge.
Examples of portfolio companies might be a live event, a football esports venture, an immersive content studio, music rights or content production and distribution.
Investments will be made into companies created by Station12, as well as into existing businesses in need of early stage capital.
The fund will make investments into a combination of SEIS/EIS qualifying companies. It will select SEIS opportunities which could provide opportunity for EIS follow on investments from the Station12 fund, as well as making EIS investments independently. Investors can choose to allocate into SEIS, EIS or a combination of both.
Risks – important
This, like all investments available through Wealth Club, is only for experienced investors happy to make their own investment decisions without advice.
EIS/SEIS investments are high-risk so should only form part of a balanced portfolio and you should not invest money you cannot afford to lose. They also tend to be illiquid and hard to sell and value. Before you invest, please carefully read the Risks and Commitments and the offer documents to ensure you fully understand the risks.
Tax rules can change and benefits depend on circumstances.
This EIS/SEIS fund invests in early-stage businesses which are more likely to fail than larger ones. So you should expect a number of failures in the portfolio, or even be prepared for all companies to fail.
