Kuber Ventures has added a new manager to its platform. The alternative fund investment platform that allows investors to access funds in the Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) & Seed Enterprise Investment Schemes (SEIS) space, has announced that the Jenson SEIS and EIS Fund 4 has signed up to its platform. EIS and SEIS eligible companies may provide investors with significant tax advantages for individuals by mitigating risk and improving upside potential.

- Twizoo – an app that generates visualized user reviews by analyzing the real-time conversations on Twitter
- Hurree – a marketing automation platform for brands to improve engagement and retention of their app users.

The Fund allows for a combination of both EIS and SEIS or 100% EIS or 100% SEIS according to individual circumstances and appetite for risk. The minimum portfolio size is 10 SEIS companies, or 5 EIS companies (if 100% allocation in EIS required).The move is
