The companies invested into through Vala’s British Ventures EIS are chosen and mentored by a group of successful entrepreneurs who have conceptualised, invested, scaled and ultimately sold venture businesses worth £170m, representing more than 3x the capital invested. Between them they have experience in 40 venture exits with all the learning that accumulates through that experience.
British Ventures EIS provides a fresh alternative to the challenges of venture building. Vala use their financial and intellectual resources to convert ideas into commercial opportunities that create capital value. The Vala British Ventures EIS provides investors with the opportunity to participate in shares of 8-12 small companies with no more than 20% committed to one single company. Deployment is targeted within 6 months of investment into companies from the following sectors: technology, engineering, media and entertainment, fintech, lifestyle and wellness, food and beverage.
“It is worth noting the breadth of experience Vala Capital’s Jasper Smith, Paddy Willis and Arthur Hughes have in founding, incubating or investing in a number of companies over their careers including some exceptional performers.”
“…the investment team’s personal track record of investments are impressive… it does show an ability to generate the sort of investment returns targeted by Vala.”
