We support London’s businesses by partnering with “best of breed” fund managers to invest our funds. Each fund targets a section of London’s early stage and small business community for whom there exists a funding gap.
The scheme, delivered by Funding London and Capital Enterprise, was established with a £25M contribution from the London Economic Action Partnership (LEAP), and is supported by the Mayor of London.
The Fund co-invests in seed rounds between £250,000- £1,500,000, led by our selected co-investment partners.
Since inception, the Fund has invested in 150 early stage digital, science and technology businesses in London. Alongside its investment, the Fund has catalysed over £200m of private investment and has created an estimated 3,000+ new jobs.
LCIF is now closed for new applications.
