We are actively seeking new partners with investment strategies that meet our strategic and commercial objectives.

Supporting providers of equity capital

Our programmes increase the volume, diversity and accessibility of longer term equity finance – or patient capital – so that smaller businesses can access the finance they need to realise their growth potential. We achieve this by investing through partners in funds and high-potential businesses.

We launched a new Managed Funds Programme in 2018, designed to attract institutional capital into venture and growth capital.

In September 2018 we will launch a Regional Angels Programme, designed to reduce regional imbalances in access to finance.

“We seek to boost the amount of institutional funding to the UK's venture and growth capital markets, channelling later stage capital to innovative, high-growth businesses.”

Vianney De Leudeville Senior Manager, British Business Investments
