Oxford Innovation EIS Growth Fund

Oxford Innovation Finance, the home of OION and Oxford Innovation EIS Growth Fund, is pleased to launch its third EIS Fund, which will invest in innovative and ambitious technology companies that have the potential to achieve significant growth.

Oxford Innovation EIS Growth Fund 3 provides an exciting opportunity to invest in a diverse selection of high quality and high-growth UK early-stage science and technology companies developing solutions to the challenges of our future. Underpinned by more than 25 years of experience, Oxford Innovation Finance is a specialist in identifying and supporting innovative start-up companies, providing its investors access to some of the most promising opportunities.

The EIS Fund is focused on identifying a range of science and technology companies for capital growth, at different stages of development and across different sectors, providing a high level of diversification for investors. Both directly and by drawing upon its experienced network, who bring their own specialist expertise, the EIS Fund provides value to early-stage companies that go deeper than just funding.


Oxford Innovation Finance is the Manager of the Oxford Innovation EIS Growth Funds 1 and 2 and has been running an angel investment network for 28 years. Its approach makes use of its extensive network of entrepreneurs, angel investors, sector experts and business coaches to source and select the best investments. Its co-investment agreement with Oxford Science Enterprises (OSE), relationship with Oxford University Innovation (OUI) and co-investments alongside members of its OION angel network and other like-minded Funds, further enhance its flow of attractive investment opportunities.

Jens Tholstrup, Executive Chairman of Oxford Innovation Finance, said: “Oxford Innovation Finance has the experience and know-how to identify promising early-stage companies being developed across the UK. We believe that by investing in, and supporting innovative and ambitious early-stage companies, we can help realise their significant growth potential and support the development of initiatives that can overcome the challenges of our future.”

Nick Cross, Chairman of the Investment Committee commented: “I am looking forward to chairing the Investment Committee for the Oxford Innovation EIS Growth Fund 3. The Investment Committee for both Funds 1 and 2 have seen innovative early-stage companies that have the potential to be excellent investments and make a substantial contribution to the UK economy. Furthermore, experience has shown that funds invested in a tighter financing environment go on to produce superior returns.”


Oxford Innovation Finance is part of the SQW Group which also includes Oxford Innovation Space, operators of a network of innovation centres, and Oxford Innovation Advice, providers of a range of coaching support for innovative companies.
