Last Thursday 28th March, GrowthInvest and Newable Private Investing gathered a key group of UK investors and market leaders at the House of Lords for a breakfast briefing event.

The morning covered key trends within the UK early-stage investment market, focusing on what the Newable team are calling the ‘Fourth Industrial Revolution’, as well as focusing on how the UK’s tax policy has sparked innovation and growth within the early-stage space.

Speakers included Jenny Tooth OBE (Chief Executive of the UK Business Angels Association), who opened the event by flying the flag for the EIS market and its importance to the UK economy; and Hitesh Thakrar (Chair of the Newable Ventures Investment Committee) speaking on the ‘revolution’ of technology and innovation that early stage investors have the opportunity to be part of through EIS investing.

GrowthInvest Chief Executive Daniel Rodwell shared an overview of the key trends and changes in the EIS market, observing the maturation of the market over the past 12 months:
“We’re moving beyond the Q1 end of tax year rush. EIS is becoming a vital tool for advisers and their clients, and we believe that the 2019-20 tax year will be marked by an increase of top-quality product providers, continued momentum, and more meaningful exits”.

We look forward to partnering with Newable Private Investing and other fund providers at similar educational events in the near future.
