British Design Fund
What is The British Design Fund?
The British Design Fund is an early stage investment fund that specifically invests in, and provides support for, early stage UK product design and manufacturing companies. The Fund seeks to work with extraordinary entrepreneurs, with scalable products, who are ready to accelerate growth and build long term value and thriving stand-out businesses.
The UK has the second largest design sector in the world and the largest design industry in Europe. However, there is an astonishing lack of equity funding into early stage product design and hardware businesses. Funding for these early stage companies often comes from a combination of innovation grants and awards and product crowd funding platforms. As a result, we believe the British Design Fund has identified an equity funding gap and aims to provide capital and expertise for companies which seek to deliver outstanding product design and innovation.
