Bure Valley Group Ltd - Antony Wade
Bure Valley Group is the private investor network and EIS platform that allows you to follow the lead of experienced investors into early-stage companies. All our opportunities are funded to a minimum of 30% before they appear on the platform, meaning an investment has serious backing before you commit. We understand EIS is an exciting concept, but we also understand the importance of putting the investors’ interests and compliance at the core of the activity. Extensive due diligence is carried out by the team; valuations and entrepreneurs are questioned in depth; and opportunities scrutinised before we seek firm commitments to fund a significant proportion of a target fund-raise, by our existing investor network. Once these commitments are in place, our platform allows every-day investors to invest directly into these pre-vetted, early-stage companies and SMEs. Shadow Founder’s ability to call on an established network of business angels and other professional investors, including family offices, venture capital and other authorised financial institutions, to commit to an opportunity before it is presented on the platform, provides comfort for investors.

CoInvestor - Chris Sandfield
We are providing fund managers and financial advisers with fully integrated software to digitise and enhance the management of tax-efficient investments, which in turn is enabling sophisticated investors to access premium opportunities, streamlined investment processes and best in class reporting.
Historically alternative assets have been more opaque than other asset classes, but this is changing with new regulations. The digitisation of alternative asset investing has brought about greater transparency, the ability to have clear audit trails, and creates an ability to access all comparative data in one place, which serves to improve best execution for the end investor.
