Par equity is a venture capital firm created to facilitate investment into smaller companies with high growth potential. Their primary interest is in companies that are innovative and do things in new and better ways, and so gain competitive advantage. Where possible they use government approved tax wrappers such as EIS or BPR to maximise returns to investors. The company has been built by investors, for investors.
Par Equity's focus is on innovation and as such they seek out companies that are doing things in new and better ways. This could be doing business more quickly, more efficiently or in a new context.
Par equity’s investment model harnesses the industry expertise, contacts and experience of a highly motivated individual investor base, drawn from successful entrepreneurs, managers and professionals with directly relevant insights that can be brought to bear at every stage:
• Identifying and evaluating potential investee companies
• Supporting investee companies post-investment
• Assisting in the exit process
Par Equity’s objective is to put both financial and intellectual capital to work. Par seek to align the Fund’s interests with entrepreneurs by investing in their businesses and working with them to add value for the benefit of all parties, helping the business to fulfil its potential.
Par Equity seeks to generate attractive investment returns and to offer Investors the opportunity to mitigate investment risk by investing only in EIS Qualifying Companies. EIS allows qualifying Investors considerable scope to benefit from tax relief and tax planning opportunities. Intentionally, the Par EIS Fund is an unapproved Fund, meaning that EIS Relief will accrue as and when investments are made, rather than being constrained by the tax year.
The Fund will provide growth capital, targeting preseries A and Series A funding rounds whereby the company has a monthly revenue somewhere in the region of £20k - £200k, i.e., the business has good traction, proven demand and is rapidly establishing its position in the market, but valuations are still in an acceptable range. Par will also consider pre-revenue opportunities if the proposition is particularly attractive. Par Equity generally participates in investment rounds of at least £0.5 million per Investee Company and will consider rounds of up to £5 million of equity finance.
Par's next EIS close will be at the end of June 2020. Applications must be received by June 17th for investment in this close.
