April 2023 Launch
Regional at seed – global at exit
The DSW Ventures SEIS fund is being launched in April 2023 to build on our success in building regional deep technology, software and software-enabled services.
The partners of DSW have committed nearly 25% of the minimum raise, and we are targeting an overall fund of £1m-£2m.
The fund is taking applications now from interested investors. Note that Seed EIS is a very high risk asset class and may not be suitable for all investors.
Contact our partners if you would like to invest.

Very early stage onwards – high risk of failure
The SEIS scheme allows for benefits both at investment and exit. The principal benefits are outlined below and are subject to individual status and the qualification of the company and investment.
Important note: Seed EIS funds invest in very early-stage companies with a very high risk of failure. Investors should be aware that Seed EIS qualification is not guaranteed and there is a risk that the entire investment could be lost. Investing in DSW Ventures Seed EIS fund is therefore subject to suitability assessments.
