The Yorkshire & Humber Equity Fund (YHEF) is a £25 million Venture Capital Fund which invests in fast growing SMEs across the Yorkshire & Humber region. YHEF’s region comprises of West Yorkshire, North Yorkshire, South Yorkshire and The Humber (East Riding of Yorkshire, Hull, North Lincolnshire and North East Lincolnshire). Investments can be up to £500,000 although any initial tranche of money would be to a maximum of £250,000. The fund is managed by YFM Venture Finance Limited. The fund is capable of investing in SMEs in most sectors generally at the startup and early stage. However, as a Regional Venture Capital Fund (RVCF), by law we are restricted from some sectors.
