Carbon13 SEIS Fund V
The Venture Launchpad: Food, Land & Nature
The Start-up Accelerator for Carbon Reduction and Removal
About the Carbon13 SEIS Fund V
The Carbon13 SEIS Fund V (2024/25 tax year) will invest in a portfolio of climatetech companies emerging from our Venture Launchpad Programme. These companies will focus on building a net-zero economy in the theme of Food, Land, and Nature.
Since 2021, we have built, supported and invested over £7m in 65 climatetech ventures, achieving strong markups to-date. Through our Venture Launchpad Programme, we are not only poised to generate returns for our investors, but also to catalyse the growth of pioneering enterprises that address the urgent challenges of our time.
By investing in SEIS, UK investors have the potential to claim up to 50% income tax relief on their investment amount and pay no Capital Gains Tax on returns.
LOW-CARBON & HIGH RETURN
Targeting startups with the potential of high growth and significant ROI by focussing on reducing carbon (CO2e) emissions by 10 million tonnes per annum.
The ventures are balanced across business models and investment themes, encompassing both hardware and software solutions.
Targeting ventures with the potential for delivering a return of 2.5x or more on investment, seeking substantial financial growth.
This is a long term and illiquid investment, investing in pre-seed stage ventures.
Capital is intended to be deployed in the 2024/25 tax year.
Working across a range of sectors within Food, Land & Nature, encompassing both hardware and software solutions.
It is intended that ventures invested in will be SEIS eligible.
Strong, proprietary deals generated by the Venture Launchpad Programme.

Materials Nexus is a deep-tech company originated at Cambridge University and Carbon13, who combine the insights of quantum mechanics with the power of AI to predict the properties of materials. Materials such as concrete, steel and glass contribute towards 50% of all CO₂ emissions. New, better materials are needed for a new, low carbon world – but it typically takes 20 years to develop a new material to be commercialised.
Their ground-breaking AI-enabled Materials Discovery Platform transforms the way new materials are designed using a rapid automated process and advanced quantum calculations that give high accuracy at larger scales.

3 billion tonnes of CO2e are emitted from methane in water each year. There is no way to remove this methane at scale. Until now. Bluemethane measures and removes methane from water. The methane is then used as a new source of clean energy. Their technology is scalable and can be deployed in a variety of settings, including wastewater treatment plants, reservoirs and rice cultivation. With methane’s global warming power 34x that of carbon, Bluemethane is tackling a core problem for global warming.
