Those chosen represent the brightest and most dynamic companies in the industry, listed in the first edition of Harrington Starr’s The Financial Technologist.
Investing in early-stage companies should be considered as high risk, but utilising the potential tax reliefs available under the Government’s Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) can make such investments particularly appealing.
Firstly, Deepbridge’s EIS funds invest in companies in two specific areas – technology and life sciences - what excites you about them?
At Deepbridge, we are keen to ensure that our financial adviser community has access to updates from our investee companies and a broad understanding of the tax-efficient investment market as a whole. This is why, throughout Spring, we are hosting a new round of virtual webinars, Deepbridge Discovery and Deepbridge Explore.

We are pleased to confirm the latest £1.3million innovation SEIS funding round.

Our Founder and Managing Partner, Ian Warwick, reflects on the news of the death of His Royal Highness Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh:
“A man that was ‘best cadet’ at the Royal Naval College at Dartmouth, an officer that would go on to be mentioned in despatches and earn an honourable citation during Europe’s Darkest Hour. A Royal that would be at the heart of the Monarchy and the Commonwealth for the best part of a Century. A father, grandfather and great grandfather. But, as importantly, a man with a notable sense of humour and sense of purpose.”
2020 represented the tenth anniversary of the founding of Deepbridge Capital. Therefore, perhaps the perfect time to speak with Founder and Managing Partner, Ian Warwick, about the history and future plans for Deepbridge Capital.
Can you start by telling us a bit about your background prior to founding Deepbridge?
We are delighted to confirm a record year of Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) fundraising, with £29.4 million deployed across 37 growth companies. This represents an increase from 2019/20 and 2018/19 in which £21 million and £28 million were deployed respectively.
