British Business Investments, as a commercial subsidiary of the British Business Bank, aims to improve access to alternative finance for smaller businesses across the whole of the UK, while supporting the UK’s transition to a net zero economy and generating a return for the UK taxpayer.
We do not finance small businesses directly, but instead work with the market to provide funding through our delivery partners. Our partners have investment programmes for a broad range of small and high growth businesses across sectors, regions and business stages.
Although we are Government-owned, we are managed independently. We have a clear mission, but with a high degree of flexibility to deliver our objectives, guided by our independent Board and investment committees. We design programmes and choose investments in response to needs and gaps in the market and continually look for new methods and partners to address the challenges small businesses face.
Through our investment programme, we’re not only increasing the supply of debt finance to smaller businesses, but making the available options more diverse too.
