Oxford Innovation’s three Business Angel Investment Networks:

Oxford Investment Opportunity Network (OION),

Thames Valley Investment Network (TVIN) and

Oxford Early Investments (OEI)

play a vital role in connecting ambitious businesses with experienced investors. Over the last three years more than 50 companies have raised over £7m directly from our Angel Investors as part of total funding raising of 40m.




Oxford Innovation manages three Angel Investment networks:

  • Oxford Investment Opportunity Network
  • Thames Valley Investment Network
  • Oxford Early Investments

These Networks offer access to a wide range of high quality investment opportunities in early stage ventures.

Some are spin-out companies from major UK technology companies or universities, others are independent start-ups. We work closely with these companies to make sure that they are appropriate for investment, have a sound business plan and deliver a good pitch.

Our investor membership includes private individuals, together with a number of Venture Capital funds, Venture Capital Trusts and Corporate Investors.
