The offer

The fund targets innovative and disruptive companies in the UK food, drink and hospitality market. The manager has extensive expertise and a thorough network of well-connected introducers, mentors, coaches and advisors from the industry.

The team works with mentors and advisors to grow portfolio companies. They also work closely with JC Decaux’s ‘Nurture’ and Tesco’s ‘Back It’ programmes.


All fees are paid by the investee companies, meaning investors should receive SEIS tax relief on the full gross subscription.

There is an initial charge of 6.5%, covering all initial costs of establishing the fund.

There is an Annual Management Fee of 1% per annum plus VAT. The fee is capped at 3.5% for life of the fund.

There is a Performance Fee of 30% of any distribution to investors above a hurdle of £1.00.

Please see the information memorandum for more details on fees.


These are very high risk, early-stage businesses. By nature these firms will be more prone to failure than later-stage, more mature businesses. All of the portfolio companies could fail.

Investors should be aware these are long-term investments and are illiquid. Capital is at risk and investors should not invest money they cannot afford to lose. Tax rules can change and the value of tax benefits will depend on individual circumstances.
