The Investment Consultant believes that the UK Consumer Technology Market currently offers attractive EIS investment opportunities and it will source opportunities to allow the Funds to invest in companies that, in the Investment Consultant’s opinion, meet the following criteria:
The investment strategy of the Deepbridge Life Sciences EIS is to invest in a diversified portfolio of up to ten investee companies that participate in one of the following:
The Deepbridge Life Sciences Team seeks to invest in companies that possess some or all of the following attributes:
A focus on life sciences and medical device technology
Significant market potential with clear need and market growth
Provide a solution to a recognised clinical or healthcare need
Innovation-driven products that have the potential to create new market segments or displace current technologies
Medical technology businesses with a clear and realistic path to commercialisation
Robust intellectual property which may provide patented or patentable IP protection
Passionate, energetic, experienced and aligned founding team
Clear exit strategy to be implemented within 4-5 years with alignment of interests with our stakeholders
Please note that not all attributes may be achievable in each investment.
The Deepbridge team believes that most exits in the technology sector will take place in the M&A space, and so aim to execute business models suitable for this exit route. The Deepbridge team will assess any opportunity to capitalise on exit opportunities, notwithstanding the 3 year EIS period, if an early exit is in Investors’ best interests. Deepbridge believes that either a sale of the Investee Companies, or a sale or refinancing of the assets owned by the Investee Companies, will enable funds to be returned to Investors.
Enterprise Investment Partners LLP
Enterprise Investment Partners LLP is a specialist smallcap investment boutique established over five years ago, whose activities include corporate finance, fund management and the design and promotion of tax-efficient investment products, with major emphasis on EIS. Enterprise has considerable experience of EIS and the tax-efficient industry, with particular expertise in the leisure, media, commercial property and renewable energy sectors. The three principals together have raised over £200m under EIS, VCT and other tax efficient structures over the last five years.
Deepbridge is a different kind of investment manager. We work closely with financial advisers and investors to design innovative products, ranging from investment in technology growth companies to asset-backed renewable energy projects. We also partner with innovative and committed management teams to help UK based companies realise their potential and become successful leading-edge businesses. Deepbridge operates across four principle divisions: disruptive technology, sustainable technologies, life sciences and renewable energy.
Successful investment in growing companies requires an appropriate balance between entrepreneurial optimism and venture capital realism. Investors can be blinded by the potential upside; however, seeing the path to commercialisation from a realistic standpoint demands an objective and experienced perspective from the Investment Manager.
