Applications now open for Boost Fund 1, Capital Pilot Advisory's automated high-volume investment fund for high-growth UK startups.

Capital Pilot Advisory announces the launch of Boost Fund 1, which will invest in high-growth UK startups using a unique automated selection and completion process. Boost Fund 1 is the first automated high-volume investment fund targeting UK startups, bringing efficiency and transparency to the fundraising process for founders, and building high-quality and truly diverse passive portfolios for its investors.

Now open for applications from high-growth startups from across the UK, Boost Fund 1 provides a final investment decision by the fund in around 2 weeks from application. The fund is sector agnostic, and particularly welcomes applications from founders and companies with backgrounds and business models which are currently underrepresented in the UK seed-stage funding landscape.

1080x360 The application process is entirely online, and takes 30 minutes. Applicant companies are assessed using Capital Pilot's data-driven Investability Rating System, and the fund will automatically select those companies which have achieved the fund’s target rating, subject to confirmatory due diligence.

The Fund plans to complete 100 equity investments in less than 6 months, making it immediately the leading UK startup investment fund by volume.

Boost Fund 1 is already closed for investment, having raised £5m from private investors to begin deployment shortly. Further larger-scale funds are planned once Boost Fund 1 has been deployed, with the ambition of investing £200 million per year in UK startups as soon as possible.

Richard Blakesley, founder and CEO of Capital Pilot, said: “We all know how important it is to ensure great businesses get the funding they need to thrive, and we also know how difficult and time-consuming fundraising can be. The Boost Fund will supercharge startups’ funding campaigns in line with our mission to ensure equal access to funding. For everyone. Everywhere.”
