The companies span early-stage investments to companies that count established, and well-recognized companies as their customers already.

Examples of companies backed by Octopus EIS investors so far include Imophoron, a company revolutionising the way vaccines are administered, Hurr an app addressing the fashion industry’s sustainability problem and XYZ reality, a company using AI to transform the construction industry.

The Knowledge Intensive Fund has limited capacity and will close on 5 April (if capacity is not reached sooner). As a knowledge intensive fund, investors will be entitled to claim income tax relief in this tax year or the previous year (rather than when funds are invested) Watch this webinar to hear from one of the investment managers of Octopus Knowledge Intensive EIS Fund to find out more about this opportunity.

Key risks to bear in mind

  • The value of an EIS investment, and any income from it, can fall as well as rise. Investors may not get back the full amount they invest.
  • Tax treatment depends on individual circumstances and may change in the future.
  • Tax reliefs depend on the EIS maintaining its EIS-qualifying status.
  • EIS shares are high risk, their share price may be volatile and they may be hard to sell.
