AIB Seed Capital Fund

The AIB Seed Capital Fund has, to date, invested €12.7m in 40 companies through 78 investment rounds.  Portfolio companies have attracted an additional €50.5m in co-investments. A €53m fund with investment from AIB Bank and Enterprise Ireland, the AIB Seed Capital Fund was established in 2007 to address a scarcity of capital for start-up companies.  

Ten years on, a significant number of companies in the Fund portfolio are now well-established and growing into significant international players within their industry sectors.


The Dublin BIC value-add

As well as initial and follow-on investment, AIB Seed Capital Fund companies benefit in the following ways:

  • Leveraging Dublin BIC’s active network of investors, entrepreneurs and advisors
  • Profiting from Dublin BIC’s association with business angel groups in Ireland and Europe
  • Benefiting from Dublin BIC’s commitment to being a long-term partner and resource for entrepreneurs 

The AIB Seed Capital Fund is now focused on maximising return to the investment partners.
