Invest in early stage businesses & entrepreneurs


As an investor, it’s a competitive market. Finding businesses who are highly likely to succeed and deliver high returns can be tough amongst a vast array of much less exciting opportunities. At YENA we make it much easier to find those businesses through attracting those with the right mind set in the first place.

From there, we develop our members’ business acumen, networking capabilities, leadership abilities, strategic thinking and much more, to turn them into very strong candidates for investment should the need arise for them.

On average, 5% of YENA’s network is looking for investment at any given time with the average seed round sitting between £100-250k, making them SEIS/EIS applicable and, as a result, highly tax efficient too.

How we facilitate investments
