Worth Capital have a remarkably effective and innovative way of unearthing valuable ideas and committed, ambitious, talented entrepreneurs – and therefore help the Fund offer investors a tax efficient EIS/SEIS portfolio of companies with managements that Worth believe can deliver strong performance. Their ‘secret sauce’ is using a widely promoted monthly competition – The Start-Up Series – to attract deal flow, from which they pick one worthy winner each month to receive EIS/ SEIS eligible equity funding.
The Start-Up Series Fund invests in product and service businesses that are in attractive markets, have innovative products or services that can create new consumption behaviours, demonstrate the marketing and communication skills to build strong brands and have potential routes to an exit.
The founders of Worth Capital are brand, marketing, retail and innovation experts that have been angel investing for 12 years. They have an enviable record of seed investing and actively helping entrepreneurs to turn their ideas into successful, sustainable and fast growing businesses. They have developed an origination methodology, through sophisticated distillation of competition entrants, that has been designed to ‘stack the odds of seed investment’ through selecting and guiding promising consumer goods and services companies.
Building on the success of previous competitions, Worth Capital have introduced the Start Up Series, a high profile search for talented UK entrepreneurs. It is being promoted by Startups.co.uk, a leading online portal designed to bring innovative ideas and funding together under one e-enabled ‘roof’ which sees 400k monthly unique visitors.
