Investments in fintech

Scotland has a very rich investors ecosystem. Public sector funding, crowdfunding, angel investment, Venture Capital and strategic partnerships. We’re also connected to investors around the world to help with diversification and internationalisation.

Angel syndicates

Angel syndicates are a great way to raise seed funding. Scotland is home to 24 angel syndicates and they invest in the fintech sector. Most of them are members of the Linc Scotland association. You can visit Linc Scotland to see who those syndicates are. You can also contact us for some guidance.

Venture Capitalists

When a business needs to scale to the next stage more investment is required. VCs can sometime be a good way to get the necessary investment. Scotland is home to many such organisations such as Scottish Equity Partners, Kelvin Capital or Par Equity to name a few.
