Britbots, the organisation dedicated to promoting UK-based robotics companies, & Sapphire Capital Partners, a specialist manager of tax-efficient funds, have launched the British Robotics Sidecar Fund. This new vintage of the fund follows the successful deployment of the 1st + 2nd funds, which have now been fully invested in 12 high-potential AI & robotics-related ventures. The new fund will predominantly focus on SEIS-qualifying opportunities thereby delivering the most significant tax benefits to investors, nonetheless there will also be scope to make a few investments under the EIS scheme when there are scale-up opportunities for existing portfolio companies. Risk is also mitigated through a portfolio approach and active involvement in business operations. There's recently been rapid increase in the number of robotics-related start-ups. The fund looks to partner with entrepreneurs & academic robotics teams to deliver high-value businesses that can deliver superior returns.
