Seed Haus, the Edinburgh based, pre-seed investment firm has announced the closing of their latest fund. The new fund will be deployed in early stage tech startups with high-growth potential.
Many of Seed Haus’ existing investors returned for their second fund with Chris van der Kuyl, Rob Dobson, Judy Wilson, Alistair Forbes, and Paul Walton all doubling down on progress to date. The investor base has welcomed new investors to the setup with both: Gareth Williams, Skyscanner co-founder, and Gordon Craig, Craneware co-founder, investing in the fund.
Seed Haus, founded by Calum Forsyth and Robin Knox, has backed 10 tech startups over the course of the 18 months. The portfolio is comprised of startups working across a range of domains including: robotics, cybersecurity, logistics, and eSports.
The fund will be used to invest in new businesses as part of the Seed Haus accelerator. Incoming startups have the option of basing themselves at the Seed Haus incubator space which is home to some of Scotland’s most exciting early stage tech companies including: Amiqus, Casta Spes Technologies, Drinkly, Kindaba, Playerbase, and TopDog.
Seed Haus’ founder and CEO, Calum Forsyth, commented: “it’s fantastic that so many of our investors have returned and great to welcome Gareth and Gordon to the setup. Incoming founders will benefit from the fact that our institutional knowledge has never been stronger and will continue to grow as we build towards the future.”
Seed Haus has opened the application process for cohort 3 investment and set an application deadline of April 18. Founders can apply directly on the Seed Haus website.
