Capital Enterprise has extensive early-stage investment experience. Over the past three years we have provided management support to startup seed investment funds, primarily the Mayor of London funded, London Co-Investment Fund (LCIF) and the AI Seed Fund.

We co-managed the London Co Investment Fund (LCIF) which invested nearly £23m capital alongside over £180m from the private sector into the pre-seed and seed rounds of 149 London based Tech Startups.  We also managed the AI Seed Fund before spinning it out, which is a seed-stage investment fund to support “AI First” startups. 

Last year alone our programmes and initiatives financially supported over 20 Capital Enterprise member organisations to directly help over 300 entrepreneurial teams to start a business in London. Through this support, these teams raised over £150m of private sector investment for their innovative new ventures and subsequently these startups have gone on to create over 1000 new jobs.
