Join our Virtual Roadshow

If you are an investor, advisor, or wealth manager and are keen to learn more about the British Design Fund and why we believe now is a great time to back UK product start-ups, then please join us at one of our virtual roadshows being held through July.

You will have an opportunity to hear from our panel about their experiences of investing in and supporting early stage British product innovation-led businesses.

You will also meet the founders of some of the first businesses to be invested in by the fund and have a chance to ask questions and learn more about their experiences.

Taking part in the panel discussions will be:

  • Damon Bonser, CEO of the British Design Fund
  • John Mathers and David Motum, Directors of the British Design Fund
  • Boyd Carson, CEO of Sapphire Capital Partners LLP, the FCA authorised investment managers behind the fund
  • Jennifer Bailey, founder of Calla Shoes, a business in the first fund’s portfolio
  • Tim Antos, founder of Kokoon Technology, a business in the first fund’s portfolio


The event will explain more about the British Design Fund, why it was created, the funding gap it addresses and the type of support it provides, along with any regulatory considerations and potential tax benefits.

Attendees are also invited to submit their questions in advance to damon@britishdesignfund.co.uk, as well as posting questions during the live Zoom chat.
