Become an Equity Gap Member

Equity Gap welcomes enquiries from prospective Individual Members and Non-Personal Members who are interested in investing in early stage companies. We have an inclusive culture with regular engagement events to help our members get to know each other and our portfolio companies.

Individual Members

Our Criteria

All members need to self-certificate as high net worth or sophisticated investors.  Our current member base includes successful entrepreneurs and people who have worked in professional services and industry in Scotland and beyond.  We have several members who live outside the UK; these are typically ex pats or former residents who want to support early stage companies in Scotland.

Our members typically invest between £5,000 and £25,000 in each deal, spreading their investment across a mix of our portfolio companies over the early stage funding lifecycle.  All investment decisions are made by the individual member and there is no requirement to invest at any time.
