Richard Cook



The new business and service is focused on high-growth opportunities.

We are pleased to announce the launch of Blackfinch Ventures, a new business within the Blackfinch Group, focused on early stage investing. The company houses the Blackfinch Ventures EIS Portfolios, investing in high-growth, EIS-qualifying firms.

With recent changes to EIS legislation, Blackfinch is at the forefront of investment opportunities. We are driving investment into new firms that meet the UK Government’s updated criteria for EIS: knowledge-intensive companies, with higher levels of research and development, innovation and intellectual property.

Start-ups and early stage businesses, while higher risk investments, offer prospects for high returns. The Blackfinch Ventures EIS Portfolios enable investors to access the new world of EIS, which brings this return potential alongside EIS tax benefits. The focus is on disruptive, innovative businesses with digital and technological potential, capable of substantial growth.

Investors in the Blackfinch Ventures EIS Portfolios have the assurance of an offering from a trusted provider. Investments are aligned with government requirements and team identifies only the highest quality investment deals. It applies its extensive experience and a broad network of relationships to deliver seamless support for companies.

Paul Rous and David Craven manage the Blackfinch Ventures EIS portfolios, working with specialists across the Group. Both are highly successful entrepreneurs with strong track records. Having built, scaled and exited numerous businesses, they have deep insight into market opportunities.

Blackfinch itself has a strong track record in EIS, with each of our previous offerings closing at capacity. Through the Blackfinch Ventures EIS Portfolios, we continue enabling investment in fast-growing UK companies. Our interests are aligned with clients, as Blackfinch invests its own capital into the portfolios. We are focused on the significant return potential created by on-the-ground investments into some of the UK’s most innovative new companies.
