First five UK startup investments confirmed by £5M Boost Fund
Boost Fund 1 is the UK’s first automated high-volume investment fund aimed at high-growth potential startup businesses
Boost Fund will be the leading UK startup investment fund by volume with plans to complete 100 investments in less than six months. The fund's investments are selected using Capital Pilot’s Investability Rating System, and reflect our vision to drive greater diversity in fundraising, through equal access to capital for everyone. Everywhere.
"As a female founder from the BAME community, I’ve felt like an outsider in the world of investment and funding as the people I’ve come across are from a more traditional background.
Boost Fund 1 allowed us (quick) access to investment based on the traction we have worked so hard to build within the business, rather than my background."
