  • The East India Company is founded in 1600. Its main objective was to contest Spanish and Portuguese control of the spice trade in the East Indies. It had £68,000 trading capital for it's first voyage, with its ships reaching India in 1608.
  • In 1657 the Company had its charter renewed by Cromwell. The joint stock system it was reorganised as gave it a much more durable basis. This time the capital was £740,000, 2% of the country's national income.
