Why we started this fund
We believe we owe it to both entrepreneurs and investors to create a more rewarding experience. This belief led us to start Nova (Nova Cofoundery Limited) in 2008, to build successful startups with ambitious tech founders. The same belief led us to launch Nova Growth Capital and this SEIS & EIS investment fund 10 years later.
Having Nova as our venture building partner means investors benefit from
co-investing with partners who are deep rooted in creating success for the startups that we back.
