To support ambitious early-stage entrepreneurs developing technologies with the potential to shape the future economy, SFC Capital, the UK’s leading SEIS investor and most active seed-stage investor, has invested GBP25 million in 120 companies (April 2020 — April 2021).
In Q1 of 2021, SFC Capital raised its largest SEIS fund to date, with GBP5 million deployed in 40 companies in just two months. The funds have been raised from private investors (SEIS and EIS funds), family offices, the SFC Angel Network and a GBP10 million commitment from the British Business Bank in April 2020 as part of its Regional Angels Programme.
SFC Capital’s investment focus for the past year has been on innovation aimed at addressing the lasting economic and social changes triggered by the Covid-19 pandemic – in particular AI, healthtech, fintech, AR/VR, IoT, and B2B SaaS, all areas in which SFC Capital expects to see innovation accelerated and diversified. In addition, and continuing its long-standing commitment to investing outside the M25 – investments include Transcend Packaging (Caerphilly), Condense Reality (Bristol), Novai (Reading) and 4D Biomaterials (Nottingham) – SFC Capital made over two-thirds of its investments in 2020/21 into startups in the regions.
