Supporting, engaging and empowering UK investors and small businesses
Small businesses are the lifeblood of the UK economy. That’s why we believe the role of the Enterprise Investment Scheme in facilitating investment from private individuals to small businesses is so important – and why EISA and its members are dedicated to supporting UK Government, businesses and investors in ensuring the Scheme continues to deliver growth to the economy.
EISA Mission Statement
EISA supports and promotes policies and initiatives that facilitate the smooth flow of risk equity capital from private individuals to smaller companies thereby benefitting the UK economy. This is achieved through;
- Protecting the interests of our members so they can continue to operate in an environment that is conducive to the growth and support of SEIS/EIS
- Promoting and raising awareness of SEIS/EIS to small businesses and financial advisers as well as to MPs, the media and the general public.
- Positioning SEIS/EIS as a trusted source of funding. We seek to demonstrate the impact and value that SEIS/EIS funding continues to have acting as a significant contributor to UK economic growth and job creation
EISA is run by a Board of Directors and organises a series of high level Committees comprising a board member and experts in the relevant field.

Women in Finance Charter
When EISA signed up to the Charter in 2018 we had 50% female representation. As of 16th October 2019 we have 50% female representation in senior management. We believe we are on track to meet our Charter target by our deadline.
As a small organisation with currently only two employees maintaining 50% female representation is a priority but also depends on employee requirements. Clearly with only 2 employees any member of staff leaving or joining has a major impact on our representation figures. Thankfully, staff turnover is low so we are able to maintain 50% female representation now and most certainly in the future
