About DIT Growth Capital

The Department for International Trade's Growth Capital Team secures the long-term economic security to the UK by attracting investment from Venture Capitalists, Corporate Venture Capitals, Family Offices and Ultra High Net Worth Individuals.

We do this by promoting the UK’s world class investment ecosystem, showcasing companies at our sector-specific Showcase events, bespoke roundtables at our Embassies and selective direct discussions and introductions with known investors using our LookBooks.

Our experienced team works directly with over 200 Corporate VCs, over 100 VC funds globally and engage private wealth managers, matching interest and ambition with UK opportunities.  Examples include:

  • A Japanese HNW, owner of major retail chains, seeking logistics solutions
  • A new global Healthcare fund seeking to deploy globally and guided to explore UK opportunities
  • A UK tech business; sharing details of their B round with over 50 strategic investors, with 17 seeking introductions
  • A Latin American fund looking to establish a UK office

These connections grow as we support Ambassadors, Regional Trade Commissioners, Trade Envoys and Embassy staff to explore new relationships.
