Mint Ventures is a women-led business angel investment club and network offering a fresh approach to investing by providing Social, Human and Economic (SHE) Capital for women entrepreneurs and diverse executive teams or boards.
Guided by a proven philosophy that inclusivity is an essential element of innovation, we understand the power of women on entrepreneurial teams and use it as an advantage in selecting investment opportunities.
Our investment focus is start-up companies with at least one woman in the leadership team looking for angel funding from around £50k up to £250k, which are usually eligible for Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) or Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS) tax relief.
We invest across all sectors in innovative products and services, which are socially and ethically responsible, with a focus on those products and services that meet the interests and needs of women.
Mint Ventures also collaborates with other business angel groups and syndicates in Scotland and beyond to diversify their own membership and invest in new opportunities.
