The SBS Later Stage EIS Fund invests in companies where there is evidence of a strong customer acceptance of the product and service offered by the company, and where we believe we can add substantively to the knowledge and experience of the founder and the team as they prepare to move from scale up to commercialisation.
We often provide our finance in tranches which are progressively made available to the companies as they achieve their pre-agreed objectives. This approach is made possible because of the reporting which is provided by companies on a regular basis as well as the regular operations meetings that the Side by Side Partnership commits to each Portfolio Company.
