R&D tax credit specialists

Company overview

Jumpstart is a market leading innovation funding specialist providing a complete service in claiming R&D tax credits and Patent Box tax relief.

BGF’s £3.4m investment was used to build a sales and marketing function to support Jumpstart’s growth across the UK. Since our investment, the business has opened offices in Birmingham and Manchester and, over the last ten years, has achieved more than 4,300 successful R&D tax credit claims for its 1,400 clients.

The business was acquired by ABGI, the consulting arm of Visiativ Group, in early 2019.

BGF's investment allowed us to build our team and expand the business across the UK, and we're excited to enter our next stage of growth with Visiativ.
