Our equity programmes invest in large-scale, private sector managed funds of funds providing later stage capital, as well as alongside business angels and other early stage equity investors. These investments unlock additional finance to support business growth across the UK.
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 October 2018 we launched 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.”
