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 Wales.
As a regional focused VC, we are very active in Wales. Both North and South Wales are covered by our head office team based in Daresbury, Cheshire.
Wales has a growing start-up community, with an improving ecosystem of regional VCs and a very supportive government. We work closely with a number of Welsh-focused banks, VCs and investor networks.
We manage one of the UK’s largest angel networks and make SEIS and EIS compliant venture capital investments into regional start-up and scale-up companies.
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.
