Worth Capital exists to help the brightest entrepreneurs obtain funds and expertise required to turn their innovations into thriving businesses, whilst delivering above benchmark returns for investors.

We run business competitions to find and fund British start-up businesses. A Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS) investment fund is invested in the winners in return for equity.

Looking forward, a separate Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) investment fund will give investors an additional discretionary opportunity to invest in non-SEIS qualifying businesses or for second rounds of previous competition winners.


Worth Capital is the creative spark and the execution engine that creates the benefit for various parties:

  A media partner commits to a substantial package of coverage to promote the competitions and follow the progress of the winning businesses. They get to be heard as the strongest media voice supporting UK entrepreneurs.

  Brands either sponsor competitions in a media title, partner with us or can host their own competition. Either way they gain cut through in the frenzy of large companies trying to demonstrate their credentials in supporting UK start-ups.

  Winning entrepreneurs receive finance, publicity and support.

  Investors get to participate in a highly tax efficient investment, investing in companies that are in the early stages of their development, but which possess a particular innovation, service or product that represents a significant high growth opportunity, either in new or established markets. With expert oversight and continued publicity associated with a high profile competition, the expectation is for these companies to accelerate rapidly, generating better than benchmark results within a 5 to 7 year horizon.
