UKI2S is a national seed investment fund that nurtures innovative businesses to leverage private investment and scale, recycling profits from the realisation of our investments into the next generation of impactful UK companies. We invest in innovations emerging from the UK’s publicly funded science and knowledge base at pre-seed and seed stages. We continue to leverage private capital by backing the best companies at Series A and B.

We are mission driven and naturally align with key Government policies to drive impact through the creation of jobs in the UK, facilitate further investment by the private sector, and by backing companies that facilitate sustainable growth, enhance the health and security of society, improve productivity, and deliver economic gains.
