Since 1983 Oxford Technology Management has specialised in making and managing investments in start-up and early stage technology-based businesses with high growth prospects. In total more than 150 investments in technology start-ups have been made, almost all of them within an hour’s drive of Oxford. This is so that we can be actively involved to help.
The OTM investment team are all scientists or engineers by background, and understanding the technology is the starting point for any investment that we may make.
The most recent fund, Oxford Technology combined SEIS and EIS fund - OT(S)EIS - is fund number 12 and made its first investment in 2012. The fund is open for investment at any time - min £15,000. The aim is to invest 1/3 af any sum invested (less fees) within the first year in 5-10 SEIS investments, and then to be able to support those which are showing promise with follow-on EIS investments in years 2 & 3. Experience has shown that it is very important for early investors to be able to support their early investments with follow-on investments in subsequenmt years. Not to be able to do this often results in a bad outcome for early shareholders.
