I was delighted to have the opportunity of attending the recent re-launch of Kelvin Capital. John McNicol and Jim Hall have worked incredibly hard to establish Kelvin Capital over the past three years. They have now achieved partner status with the Scottish Co-investment Fund and they have had a great deal of support from their Anchor Investors.
It is worth noting that Kelvin now has the capacity to invest up to £6 - £8 million a year and they have the potential to make a very significant impact on the entrepreneurial community in the West of Scotland.
They attracted a very good audience of existing and prospective investors and four companies pitched for investment. They were all very credible propositions with interesting new technologies which are fully developed and with market traction.
They continue to attract a substantial number of companies looking for investment and as their profile increases they will see the best of the available deal flow in the West of Scotland. Kelvin Capital is the first Business Angel syndicate to be established in Glasgow and they are attracting significant interest from perspective new investors who are beginning to realise that a well balanced portfolio of early stage investments offers the prospect of real long-term capital growth as well as significant tax incentives.
