About the competition

A little more about the competition

What are SEIS/EIS schemes?

Did you know that SEIS/EIS are generous tax relief incentive schemes, offered by the UK government to UK-based investors to encourage investment into startups?

That’s right – your investors could get even more of an incentive to invest in your business with this simple scheme, but unfortunately not all startups are guaranteed approval from the HMRC.

FounderCatalyst’s mission is to provide extensive (and affordable) support with the application process to maximise your chances of success, proudly boasting an impressive 98% success rate. They are now the only fixed price and cost-effective way of closing funding rounds in the UK.

All you have to do is submit your pitch deck using the application form at the top of this page, then sit back and relax whilst the team processes the applications, selecting a handful for Sam to review. Sam will then record an honest review of the pitch decks, providing key tips and improvements that will often be picked up on by potential investors.

Don’t miss this free opportunity to get an expert review – apply now!

The competition is open to anyone in the process of raising seed investment and looking for some feedback on their progress.
