For InvestorsAt Startup Giants, our aim is to provide a refreshing alternative to the traditional routes of investing directly in early stage tech startups in the UK with all the benefits of investing on a regulated stock exchange. Invest In Startups
Investor BenefitsBuilding a portfolio in young tech companies requires the right knowledge and background to assess startup potential. If you’re using Angel and Crowdfunding platforms then you’ll need to leave your money tied up until the startup provides an exit, which could take five to ten years. Startup Giants overcomes these challenges by having been successfully admitted to the NEX Exchange Growth Market in London, offering more liquidity and enabling you to invest in a regulated portfolio of startups and trade your shares whenever it suits you.
UK Tax Relief
Portfolio Spread (+ Deal Selection)When you invest in Startup Giants, you’re buying a stake in every startup in our portfolio twice a year through our accelerator rounds. All the companies that we support have the potential to reach a £10m revenue or a £100m valuation within 3 years, and have gone through a rigorous selection round and a subsequent evaluation by an independent Investment Advisory Board before being actively supported by our mentors throughout their growth period.

Early Stage Focus
Imagine being able to invest in early stage tech companies and being able to pull your money out whenever you wanted. Well soon you can.
Traditional direct investing into new startups using Angel or Crowdfunding sites requires you to lock up your funds in each deal until the startup matures, for example through a trade sale or an IPO.
With Startup Giants, since we are applying to trade on the NEX Exchange Growth Market, you’ll be able to buy and sell shares that cover our entire portfolio online (or using your own broker) and benefit from our assets in the same way that you can trade stock from Microsoft, Google or any other quoted company.
Just phone your broker and mention our ticker symbol NEX:SUG, and refer them to our NEX Exchange Corporate Adviser Keith, Bayley, Rogers.
UK Tax ReliefStartup Giants is a regulated investment stock, UK investors will be able to use their SIPPs and ISAs to invest into Startup Giants and benefit from UK tax incentives (up to 45% for SIPPs), or use a life insurance ISA that will pay out tax free as part of inheritance planning.
All our startups are UK based and we support all of them to apply for SEIS status at inception. We do not benefit from and are unable to pass on SEIS tax incentives to our own shareholders, however having this status makes our startups more attractive in subsequent rounds to external investors that are themselves able to benefit from SEIS tax relief.

Brexit-Resistant Customer Base
Traditional global internet marketing has for a long time classified potential leads, subscribers, and customers using geotargeting to target potential customers in specific locations. These locations are grouped by country into tiers according to their responsiveness to new offers and higher disposable income, with Tier 1 having a much higher premium over Tier 2 as a more attractive marketing proposition for achieving a higher conversion ratio of leads-to-customers.
The generally recognised Tier 1 countries are United Kingdom, United States, Australia, New Zealand, and Canada with a combined population of 456.9 million. Coincidentally, these are all English-speaking and don’t require local language versions of our startups’ UI as is normally required when selling on any scale into countries like France, Spain, Germany, and Italy.
Furthermore, where we saw the sterling currency dropping against other foreign currencies after the British people voted to Leave the EU, we see this as a potential advantage as it makes our startups’ pricing points more attractive to all countries outside the United Kingdom in the Tier 1 geotargeting group that our startups are including in their launch marketing.
How To Invest In Startup GiantsUnlike some other funding platforms, we don’t make it hard for you to invest in new and upcoming startups in the UK. You don’t need to qualify as a self-certified sophisticated investor. You don’t need to be an Angel investor. And you don’t need to evaluate each startup yourself to build a portfolio. Because we have been admitted to the NEX Exchange Growth Market, anyone can invest in Startup Giants as little or as much as they like, whenever they like.

No problem. You can get direct access to our deals instead.
While Startup Giants shares are publicly traded on the NEX Exchange in London and investors can buy our shares (symbol NEX:SUG) through their broker to build a portfolio, we also understand that there are investors who want to invest directly in our deals either for the SEIS tax relief or as a strategic investment. To satisfy this interest, we have put together a syndicate to enable you to co-invest with us into these high growth startups.
