About Mint Ventures

Guided by a proven philosophy that inclusivity is an essential element of innovation, we understand the power of women on entrepreneurial teams and use it as an advantage in selecting investment opportunities.

Our investment focus is early stagecompanies looking for investment from around £50k up to £200k which are eligible for Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) or Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS) tax relief.

We invest in products and services that meet the interests and needs of women with a clear social, ethical or environmental purpose with a focus on under funded sectors where women are more likely to start their companies including: Retail, Food and Drink, Beauty, Health and Wellbeing, Creative Industries and Digital Market Place technology.
