Winner of ‘Best SEIS Investment Manager’ at the Growth Investor Awards

Written by Minna Wollocombe

"Winning the Best SEIS Fund award is a great achievement for the team here at Fuel Ventures, especially considering we only launched the pre seed strategy in 2021. It's a testament to our team's hard work and dedication. We're thrilled to receive this recognition of the achievements from the SEIS fund after such a short period of time against some strong, well established competition." - Mark Pearson, Managing Partner, Fuel Ventures.

The award for Best SEIS Investment Manager is particularly meaningful to us as it reflects our core mission of empowering emerging, pre-seed businesses. Working closely with the passionate founders and teams, we have witnessed firsthand the transformative impact of early-stage investments in this space. Our approach has always been to not only provide financial support but also to offer strategic guidance to our investee companies. This award serves as a reminder of the positive influence we can exert in the ecosystem and further fuels our passion to continue our work with even greater impact in the future.

"We are immensely proud and honoured to have our SEIS fund recognised as the 'Best SEIS Fund' at the 2023 Growth Investor Awards” says James D’Mello, Head of Strategic Partnerships at Fuel Ventures. “This accolade is a testament to the hard work, dedication, and innovative approach of our team. Being acknowledged by the judges amidst such strong competition from our peers is not only a significant achievement for us but also a firm validation of our commitment to backing what we believe are the best startups at an early stage.

We are delighted to receive this recognition and remain dedicated to maintaining our high standards and delivering exceptional value to our investors. This award inspires us to continue pushing boundaries and setting new benchmarks in the industry.

Fuel Ventures’ success at the awards doesn’t end here. We are also proud to have been named runner up in the Best Investor Return Category. This milestone comes at the end a great year for us, after our IFA team made up of James D’Mello and Katie Hopkin were highly commended at the Enterprise Investment Scheme Association awards only a few months ago. We look forward to continuing to pursue this success trajectory in the new year.
