A collaboration between Parkwalk and Imperial College Enterprise

The Imperial College Enterprise Fund III (ICEF III) invests in high-growth, IP-rich technologies founded at Imperial College London. By investing in ICEF III, you can benefit from tax reliefs under the Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) outlined below, subject to personal tax circumstances.

5 EIS tax reliefs available:

  • 30% Income tax relief, available in the year of investment or carried back to the previous year
  • Capital gains tax deferral – on gains made in prior three years or for one year following investment
  • IHT free – provided the investments are held for two years and are held at time of death
  • Tax free capital gains on the investments
  • Loss relief – option to claim losses against capital gains or income*

Do not invest unless you are prepared to lose all the money you invest. This is a high-risk investment and you are unlikely to be protected if something goes wrong. Take 2 mins to learn more.

About The Fund

The Imperial College Enterprise Funds were first launched in 2020. The third Imperial College Enterprise Fund (ICEF III) offers investors an opportunity to invest in companies founded on some of the remarkable research at Imperial College London through an early stage, tax-efficient vehicle. The Fund brings together Imperial College Enterprise, a leading technology transfer and commercialisation organisation, and Parkwalk, a leading technology EIS fund manager, to offer an early stage, growth-targeted investment fund, with the potential to maximise tax-free capital gains.

*Please note: Investments must be held for 3 years to achieve all 5 tax reliefs. Tax reliefs are dependent upon an investor’s circumstances. We strongly suggest that you seek specialist tax advice. Tax benefits above are as at March 2024. Loss relief reduces the impact of a loss but does not eliminate it entirely.

Imperial College Enterprise Fund

The objective of the Imperial College Enterprise Fund III (ICEF III) is to invest in a portfolio of early stage, high-growth, research-intensive companies with strong connections to Imperial College London. These could be spin-outs based directly on academic research, deep science businesses developed by students, or companies emerging from Imperial’s innovation ecosystem. The Fund will provide funding and support to companies founded on Imperial’s research, helping transform these new scientific discoveries into tomorrow’s solutions.

The Fund utilises the tax reliefs of the government’s EIS and SEIS schemes where applicable.
