Background on OION

Oxford Innovation established the Oxford Innovation Investment Opportunity Network (OION) in 1994 as one of the UK’s first business angel networks. Today, OION has an exemplary record in matching up investors and high growth businesses seeking funding. We have a particular interest in companies with a strong barrier to entry, often patented; but will consider any company with a strong vision for growth and seeking investment from £50k to ~£2m. We link qualified Investors (High Net Worth, Sophisticated and Institutional) to companies with high growth potential. Following the success of the OION 2015 & 2016 SEIS Funds, OION, as part of OION Ltd, is pleased to announce the launch of The OION Fund - investing in to both EIS & SEIS qualifying companies.
