Our fortnightly podcast following the UK venture capital industry. Dr Brian Moretta explores small growth companies, as well as the funds and people who invest in them.
The EIS Navigator podcast, produced and hosted by Dr Brian Moretta, focuses on the UK venture capital industry, particularly areas supported by various government schemes including the Enterprise Investment scheme (EIS), the Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS) and Venture Capital Trusts. The podcast will predominantly be looking at small growth companies – often those at the seed phase, as well as the funds and people who invest in them.
We interview leading people in the industry, whether fund managers, company founders or experts from other service providers. The aim is to dig deeply into topics, getting away from the promotional material that predominates elsewhere. Although we’re not going to ignore the pandemic, venture capital investing is a long-term endeavour and we will focus on topics that are relevant at any time. The first few episodes include discussions of angel investing, intellectual property and accelerators.
