Kevin Grainger

Our next meeting will be held at 7.45 am for 8 am on Wednesday 3 December 2014 in the Alexander’s Restaurant at the Best Western Scores Hotel, St Andrews. The cost of the meeting will be £11 per person. As usual any guest who may be thinking of joining the Club will be welcome free of charge.

Our guest speaker will be Mr Kevin Grainger, founding member and ‘gatekeeper’ of the EOS Technology Investment Syndicate (“EOS”)

EOS is Scotland’s newest Angel Investment Syndicate which has been founded to provide seed equity funding to start-up, or early stage, science or technology businesses operating in a range of sectors such as software, renewables, bio-medical, oil and gas, marine, etc.

EOS holds 6 members meetings a year– all held in St Andrews on mid-week evenings – at which 2 or 3 carefully selected investment opportunities are presented out of dozens reviewed.

The members then make up their own minds as to whether they may, or may not, want to offer an investment to any of these businesses. If investments are offered, EOS then manages the whole investment process, along with Thorntons Law LLP, on behalf of the members.

The opportunities presented will usually offer significant tax benefits to the investors through the HMRC SEIS or EIS schemes. EOS was launched this summer and has now held two investment meetings at which 5 companies have presented. We are currently in the middle of our first investment offer.

Their next meeting in on Wednesday 10th December at 6pm in St Andrew – Guests are welcome but should register with Kevin Grainger on 07712526866 or
