The Scottish Co-investment Fund (SCF) by Scottish Enterprise is designed to address a finance gap alongside Scottish Enterprise’s accredited co-investment partners.
Investment can be made in companies from start-up, early-stage to expanding businesses seeking to develop products and/or markets.
Through this fund, Scottish Enterprise can help you with:
- Match accredited investment partners up to a maximum of 50% of the total funding package on a commercial basis
- Provide from £10,000 up to £2 million, as part of a total deal size typically ranging from £20,000 up to £10 million
This is an equity fund with deals brought forward to Scottish Enterprise by its partners. Scottish Enterprise invests on equal terms with the investment partners.
Enquiries for Scottish Co-Investment Fund support should be made through an accredited investment partner.
To be considered for investment from the Scottish Co-investment Fund your company must:
- Be a commercially-viable business
- Have, or be in the process of developing, a significant operational presence in Scotland which is proportionate to the levels of investment being sought
- Fall within the EU definition of a Small to Medium Enterprise (SME)
The fund is not sector-specific but certain sectors may be restricted, including:
- Real estate/property development
- Social and personal services
- Pubs, clubs and restaurants
- Local services
- Banking, some financial services and insurance
- Motor vehicles
- Nuclear decommissioning
- Professional services
You’ll need to secure funding from an accredited co-investment partner before Scottish Enterprise can look at co-investing into your company.
The partner will carry out diligence and bring the investment proposition to Scottish Enterprise detailing deal size, timing and deal structure.
Once an investment is agreed upon, the portfolio management team will work alongside your management team on an ongoing basis. We’ll help shape your strategy and maximise the investment outcomes for the company, the investors and the Scottish economy.
