          What our portfolio companies say about us

          cognitant

          "OION was a fantastic resource when raising our round of finance. The process is clear and we felt well supported when raising and now we are part of the portfolio. We pitched at OION in May 2021 amongst a very interesting selection of start-ups across several sectors and were delighted to receive funding from the Oxford Innovation EIS Growth Fund and from several angel investors. OION have also introduced us to potential partners and helped us to get support from Innovate EDGE."

          ecosync

          "We would recommend OION when raising funds. As a fast-growing innovative start-up, we chose to work with OION and the Oxford Innovation EIS Growth Fund in 2021 because of their great reputation in Oxford and access to a large list of well qualified and influential Angel investors. We are now supported by a Chairman and three observers from the OION network on the Board and very much appreciate the continued support."
