Venture capital remains an important source of funding for entrepreneurial start-ups and young, growing companies and has a number of advantages over other types of investment.
We can structure venture capital finance with no ongoing repayments, investing income back into the business, allowing it to grow more quickly. While the investor will take an equity stake, you will retain control of your business and can benefit from the expertise and support that experienced venture capital investors bring.
Enterprise Ventures is one of the leading providers of venture capital and equity funding to small businesses throughout England and Wales. We provide funding of £25,000 to £2 million and invest in businesses across all sectors of the UK economy, including digital and creative, advanced manufacturing, pharma and healthcare and business services
What all our investee companies have in common is leaders with the talent, experience and determination to build great companies. In particular we are keen to support management break-outs – former managers or management teams who are experienced within their industry but who are now venturing out on their own.
As well as long-term equity funding, we offer access to a network of entrepreneurial mentors, each of whom have built and sold their own companies, to advise, challenge and encourage.
We take time to get to know the entrepreneurs we back, working with them to test and refine their plans. Once we have made the decision to invest, we are committed to helping the business to achieve long-term success.
