Highland Venture Capital

Investing throughout Scotland in emerging business


HVC is actively looking for new members from high net worth and sophisticated investors who are interested in investing in early stage companies.

We meet in the late afternoon, once a month in an Inverness hotel. At these meetings we usually have 2 presentations from companies, discuss the current investments and review the plans received and circulated in the past month.

All plans that are received are circulated to the members, so it is the members who decide which plans we are interested in, and get a presentation opportunity the next month.

We are happy to accept members from throughout the UK but our investment focus is Scotland (ideally the Highlands).

Minimum Investment in any opportunity is £5,000 and is typically in an EIS qualifying company.

Those members who make investments in new business proposals will be charged a fee by HVC of 3% of the total amount invested.
The membership fee for HVC is currently £400 plus vat for the first year (£300 if joining after 1st December) and thereafter an annual fee fixed by the board from time to time, to cover the administration of running the syndicate. In the current year (2008/09) the annual fee is £250 plus vat per member.
