The Seedcorn Fund invests from £50k up to £780k in early stage innovative or technology-based ventures which have the potential to become “beacon companies” for the Yorkshire and Humberside region.

FY Seedcorn Finance - Enterprise Ventures

The fund fills a gap in the market for ventures that are often seen as too risky for mainstream providers or which require more hands-on support from a specialist investor.

This Fund is part of the £90m Finance Yorkshire Fund which is financed by the European Regional Development Fund and the European Investment Bank as part of the JEREMIE programme, which aims to improve access to finance for SMEs.

Prospective businesses are likely to be working on new and innovative technology with ideas that have strong potential and once in the market, are capable of rapid growth.
