OUR PROGRAMMES AND FUNDS
Capital Accelerate & Scale Tech Superstars (CASTS) aims to create a pathway, unique in the UK, where ambitious and able tech start-ups receive the support to build up their team, management and leadership capacity, develop and test their world class technology/product, achieve good market traction, raise seed investment and prove their businesses model is both repeatable and scalable.
CASTS is part funded through the European Regional Development Fund.
The London Co-Investment Fund is founded and managed by Funding London and Capital Enterprise. It has raised £25m from the Mayor of London’s Growing Places Fund to co-invest in seed rounds between £250,000- £1,000,000, led by our selected co-investment partners.
We are looking to invest in high growth tech, science and digital startups in London. Could that be you?
Green Light Programme
The Green Light Programme is a light touch investment readiness programme that takes place over 5 weeks on a regular basis throughout the year.
The aim of the programme is to assist London based tech founders to reach a credible position to raise early seed-seed stage funding. Throughout and following your time with us we will leverage our connections within the London Investment scene to introduce you to and set up meetings with early stage VC and angel investors in your sector. We are a cross sector part ERDF-funded programme that’s free for founders to take part in – all we ask for is founders who are driven with a strong product and keen to make the most of the advice and opportunities provided to you by your time on the programme!
CAP - AI
A knowledge transfer program designed to support research intensive data driven start ups which use Machine Learning or other computational methods to deliver commercial products.
Every year we invest £100K each in up to 20 early stage deep tech startups using the latest in AI and machine learning to build great products and businesses that solve real world problems.
In exchange for the investment, we look to receive 5-10% equity. We’re able to lead rounds and help startups raise more through introductions to our network of business angels and VC partners.
