Recent investments include Fintech specialist, Delio; automated compliance solution, Northrow; and leading provider of sterilisation barrier products to the healthcare and industrial sectors, Westfield Medical.
Businesses we've supported in the region
We are pleased to receive investment from Maven which allows us to expand our operations to support customer demand and new partnerships. We know that clients value being able to tailor our platform to perform complex checks for a variety of scenarios.
Adrian Black, CEO and founder of NorthRow
“The sale of Westfield represents a good return for our investors. The management team have been instrumental in successfully delivering the organic growth plan in recent years and the business has performed strongly. The sale to the Sterimed Group is a great strategic fit for Westfield with significant opportunities for the two businesses to explore. It has been a pleasure to work with the Westfield management team and we wish them well as the company embarks on the next stage of its growth."
