At Blackfinch Ventures we invest in innovation, with a technology mandate. We support exciting young and growing tech firms with great ideas, who can deliver long-term value. The focus is on disruptive businesses offering products that address real world needs, with the capability to make an impact in global markets.

Blackfinch Ventures was founded in 2018, and as a result of client demand we launched our EIS Portfolios, which invest in early-stage technology focused firms. Since then our team has expanded threefold, added Blackfinch Spring VCT to our range and invested in over 41 companies.
