BACKING FOUNDERS SINCE 1999

We are passionate about investing in the future of UK technology, backing innovative early-stage companies with strong growth potential.

Don’t invest unless you’re prepared to lose all the money you invest. This is a high-risk investment.

INVESTING WITH OXFORD CAPITAL

We have invested in over 100 early-stage businesses that are solving commercial, technological or scientific problems in innovative ways, in sectors such as the future of retail, fintech, digital health and Artificial Intelligence. 

We invest through the Government backed, tax advantaged Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS).

SEEKING INVESTMENT
FROM OXFORD CAPITAL

We look for founders that are developing high potential, disruptive technology with strong intellectual property, or businesses that can demonstrate early traction of sales and signs of product-market fit.

We aim to be the first institutional investor, typically investing in companies at an early stage (seed to series A).

WHO WE ARE

Founded in 1999, we offer individuals and families access to some of the most innovative early- stage companies in the UK. Over the last 20 years, we have invested approximately £500 million in over 100 companies.

From our base in Oxford, one of the greatest knowledge clusters in the world, we invest in venture capital across the UK and support early-stage companies to fulfil their growth potential.
