The majority of its investment opportunities are eligible for tax reliefs under the Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) or Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS).

Unlike many platforms, Growthdeck provides service levels similar to more traditional private equity and venture capital firms, including professional due diligence, extensive investee business support and higher levels of customer service. This is provided by an experienced investment team with decades of combined experience in private equity (with the likes of 3i, Mitsui, and Hotbed).

Growthdeck also has a dedicated panel of experts from various industries/sectors, known as the ‘Growthdeck Panel’. All panel members have many years of experience in building and managing successful businesses and they help Growthdeck provide the best level of service to its investors and fundraising businesses 01908 953260
