Scottish Venture Fund

Main Content


The Scottish Venture Fund invests in companies from start ups, early-stage to expanding businesses seeking funding to develop products and/or markets.

This fund can invest alongside sophisticated private sector investors on equal terms, up to a maximum of 50% of the total funding package on a commercial basis. Scottish Enterprise is a 'gap' funder, so you should seek to maximise private sector investment before approaching us. We can provide from £10,000 up to £2 million, as part of a total deal size ranging from £20,000 to £10 million.

The fund is primarily equity-based (Scottish Enterprise will subscribe for shares), however, we will consider other forms of investment. We take a flexible approach, ensuring the most appropriate solution is provided for the companies’ circumstances, working alongside the private sector investor(s).
