The Vala EIS Portfolio invests in start-ups and early growth stage companies run by inspirational founders.
All the companies the fund invests in are selected and mentored by our team of highly experienced entrepreneurs, who have decades of experience of starting, growing and selling businesses.
We stick to investing in the sectors that our investment committee knows best: technology, engineering, fintech, media & entertainment, lifestyle brands, and food & beverages.
The fund typically invests in tranches, closing investments into multiple companies over a short period of time. This approach means investors' funds are fully invested into EIS-qualifying companies within 3 to 6 months of subscription.

Your capital is at risk and should only invest what you can afford to lose. Tax reliefs will depend on your individual circumstances and tax legislation can change. We always recommend that you apply to invest after consulting with a suitably qualified financial adviser.
