Looking to unleash the potential of knowledge-intensive start-ups

What we do

“We’re building a range of innovative investment products to unlock this potential; using our insight and influence, our scale and experience to offset some of the risks of early stage investment while coordinating government grants and public sector support to build momentum around these exciting young companies.”

Chris Manson - CEO Newable

We provide Private Investors, Family Offices and Corporate Investors the opportunity to invest in potentially high growth early-stage knowledge-intensive companies. Many of our Investors not only invest in the companies we present but also work alongside them as Lead Investors to help them unleash their potential.

Having been in operation for over 30 years we have developed an extensive ecosystem of investors, co-investors and partners who we work with to ensure we have an extensive pipeline of early-stage companies to work with. Investors are able to attend our Investor Events to meet entrepreneurs directly or invest in our Funds for a more passive approach. Typically we invest in UK based innovative companies who qualify for investment under the Enterprise and/ or Seed Enterprise Investment Schemes.
