Foresight Williams Technology
The Foresight Williams Technology EIS and VCT funds are a collaboration between Williams Advanced Engineering and Foresight Group, created to help grow innovative small and medium-sized UK technology businesses. Together they harness Foresight’s 35-year track record of fund raising and investing, and Williams Advanced Engineering’s technology development and commercialisation experience.
The funds invest in pre- or post-revenue businesses with high growth potential and defensible technologies between TRL 4 and TRL 8 (Technology Readiness Level), and which may benefit from WAE’s technical, commercial and promotional support.
