Sure Ventures PLC is listed on the Specialist Fund Segment (SFS) of the London Stock Exchange. Those investing in our fund will get exposure to Suir Valley Funds ICAV which in turn co-invests with Enterprise Ireland, one of the largest VC’s in Europe.
The Company will invest the first £5m of net proceeds raised from the First Issue into Suir Valley Ventures Fund, a sub-fund of Suir Valley Funds ICAV.
Additional funds raised will be invested in additional target companies or increase is position in companies where the ICAV already has investments. It will do so by either investing directly in individual companies or by making commitments to fund structures with similar investment policies to Suir Valley Ventures Fund and the Company or investments through high potential start-up accelerators in the same market areas.
The Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality (AR/VR), Internet of Things (IOT) and Financial Technologies (FinTech) markets are evolving at a rapid pace.

We will invest at the seed stage of software companies operating within their target markets to help grow them towards their Series A funding, at which point we intend to follow-on our investment.
WHO IS THE FUND SUITABLE FOR?
It is often too expensive, too risky and too labour intensive for investors to build a portfolio of this nature themselves.
An investment in Sure Ventures PLC is designed to be suitable for:
- Institutional investors and professionally-advised private investors seeking exposure to early-stage technology companies
- Financially sophisticated, non-advised private investors who are capable of evaluating the risks and merits of such an investment and who have sufficient resources to bear any loss which may result from such an investment
Our board provides governance and independence from the investment manager, ensuring the Fund is managed in the best interests of its shareholders.
