Octopus is synonymous with small company investing and is the UK’s largest specialist manager of tax efficient investments., managing more than £9bn on behalf of both retail and institutional investors. Our experience spans more than 20 years and, in that time, we have invested over £2 billion in early-stage companies.
Each portfolio in the Octopus Ventures EIS Service will have around 10-15 companies selected for their ambitious growth targets and potential to become a household name of the future. Investors will have access to the expertise of Octopus Ventures, the team that manages Octopus Titan VCT – the UK’s largest VCT. Our previous track record for identifying, growing and exiting some of Britain’s brightest companies includes investments in Graze, Secret Escapes, Zoopla and Tails.com, to name but a few. Our pipeline of opportunities spans very early stage (seed) through to Series A and Series B investments.
We have aligned our fees with the interests of our investors. Our annual management charge is only payable if a company is sold for more than the amount invested into it.
