Welcome to Ufi Ventures

We are the UK’s specialist investor in VocTech ventures, investing between £75k and £1m in early stage companies that are building digital technologies to give people and businesses the skills needed for work, now and in the future.

At a time when new technology is driving significant change in the way we work and the skills needed, we see a great opportunity to catalyse investment in the technologies that will support a more skilled and productive workforce.

Utilising Ufi’s depth of experience in the development of technology to build people’s skills for work, we support our growing portfolio through access to our wide expert pool and network.

Who do we invest in?

We look for companies that are targeting positive impact on VocTech in three ways:

  1. Helping adults in the UK to access and progress in work through improved skills
  2. Helping employers in the UK to improve their business performance through improving the skills of their workforce
  3. Growing the VocTech sector by demonstrating attractive financial returns from investing in it

We are building a portfolio of around twenty companies.
