FOR INVESTORS

The VSCF provides investors a simplified way to access a broad set of early stage venture investments, than would otherwise be possible. Together with full ESVCLP tax flow through benefits and a preferential return structure, it makes a compelling investment case.

FOR VC FUNDS

The VSCF is looking for early stage focused venture funds, targeting seed and series A rounds. The Fund is industry and technology agnostic. We are looking for both mature and new fund managers. Funds need to be highly differentiated, with a focus on a particular niche which aligns with the teams’ skill set and strategy.
