Founded in 1982, Newable is independently recognised as the UK’s leading investment network, providing equity, advisory, and lending solutions to around 12,000 SMEs every year. Deeply embedded in the SME ecosystem, Newable’s long-term relationships with government, funding partners, and the business community ensure that the start-ups it backs receive the most appropriate investment and the most effective advice and support. In line with this, the fund aims to invest in seven to ten early-stage, knowledge-intensive companies across specialist areas including electronics, automation, medtech, and spacetech. Focused on investing in game-changing technologies, the fund provides a gateway to Series A for visionary businesses that are now looking to scale commercial operations. Newable Ventures follows a robust and extensive screening process of around 1,500 early stage companies a year, providing funding for only the best 2% of companies which have also been vetted by an independent Investment Committee.
Newable Ventures also hosts Frequent pitch events, and encourages their network of 500+angels to co-invest alongside the Fund.
