NPIF Maven Equity Finance

Early or later stage equity funding from £50,000 to £2m for businesses across the North of England.

Equity finance is widely accepted as an important ingredient for innovative and fast growth businesses at all stages.

While the number and value of equity deals across the UK have grown in recent years there is a large disparity between the North of England and London & the South East. Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund (NPIF) has a particular interest in supporting equity investments and helping to build a vibrant and sustainable venture capital community in the North.

An equity based investment could be right for you if you are looking to grow at a rate that cannot be supported through borrowing, which will tend to be linked to the ability to service debt from existing cash flows. This can apply at any stage of a company’s growth cycle from start up to scale up.

We are backing business growth right across the North, providing ambitious companies with the financial resources they need to fulfil their untapped potential. If you feel that your business could benefit from funding to help achieve its growth ambitions then apply today!
