In 2024, we are celebrating 30 incredible years of the Enterprise Investment Scheme. Three decades of founders, investors and more using the EIS to support UK startups to become household names, create life-changing health technology and more.

Join the Enterprise Investment Scheme Association and the EIS/SEIS ecosystem to celebrate!

We will be holding an exciting in person conference, bursting with important speakers and conversations you won’t want to miss.

There will be talks and refreshments throughout the day, followed by an evening reception where you will be served delicious drinks and canapes. 

What is the EIS, and why are we celebrating?

The Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) and Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS) are Government schemes that provides a range of tax reliefs for investors who subscribe for qualifying shares in qualifying companies.

The EIS and the SEIS are responsible for £32 billion of investment into more than 56,000 UK startups. They are the leading schemes of their kind globally and play a fundamental role in attracting talent to the UK. The schemes ensure startups have access to crucial investment, driving innovation, creating jobs and fuelling growth across the whole of the UK. The EIS Association is the trade body for the EIS ecosystem, representing more than 400 entrepreneurs, advisers and investors.
