Venture investing is at the heart of what Foresight does. Our founding partners started the business over 30 years ago to invest in the burgeoning information technology sector and we returned more than 4x to investors with that first fund.
Foresight Ventures is a specialist team within Foresight SME Investment and invests in early-stage, knowledge-intensive businesses with disruptive technologies and highly defensible IP.
More recently we have formed a unique collaboration with Williams Advanced Engineering, the subsidiary of Williams Grand Prix Engineering to launch Foresight Williams Technology EIS Fund. The fund focuses on early-stage companies developing innovative and transformational technologies, where Williams' technical expertise in sectors including lightweight structures, aerodynamics, electronics and control systems and advanced manufacturing alongside our investment and commercial know-how can be harnessed to help accelerate the businesses towards commercial success.
We believe venture investing is a smart solution to providing much needed capital to early stage companies who in their own way are working to create a smarter future.
Our venture team manages the Foresight Williams Technology EIS Fund which focuses on knowledge intensive, early-stage businesses with defensible IP and the potential to disrupt the market in which they operate. Find out more about Foresight Williams Technology EIS Fund here.
