Manchester and the North West

Our head office is based in the North West and covers Manchester, Liverpool, Cheshire and Lancashire.

Manchester is now firmly established as England’s second city with respect to start-up funding. Funding options for technology and other scale-up businesses in the region are improving but still not broad enough.

As a venture capital investor focused on the under-funded regions of the UK, DSW Ventures is an important part of the expansion of investments in innovative early stage businesses and start-ups in Manchester, Liverpool and the wider North West.

We manage one of the UK’s largest networks of high-net-worth and angel investors and make SEIS and EIS compliant venture capital investments into regional start-up and scale-up companies in the Manchester and North West region.

On behalf of our angel and institutional investors, we provide equity of up to £1 million+ as part of funding rounds of up to £2 million.
