Growth funding for ambitious businesses
We work with entrepreneurs, innovators and business leaders who have the ambition and drive to grow their businesses further and faster.
Maximising your growth potential
We have a track record of providing equity and debt finance to a wide range of companies including early stage SMEs seeking capital to expand, as well as later stage more established businesses looking for finance to help them scale further and continue to grow in value.
What we look for
We back talented and committed management teams who share the same ambition to grow shareholder value as we do.
We can support transactions requiring capital from £100,000 via our specialist regional funds, up to £20 million from our MBO Fund.
Stage of growth
We back entrepreneurial and innovative smaller companies with revenues of at least £1 million per annum, which are growing quickly.
We prefer to invest in UK domiciled businesses.
We are sector agnostic, supporting ambitious businesses across a range of the UK's most vibrant industries.
We don't always expect businesses to be the finished article. We aim to add value in companies which have a clear, credible business strategy, capable of delivering growth in profit and earnings.
Our growth funding options
Looking to scale up, expand into new markets, or launch a new product? We can help you achieve that goal. The Maven VCTs are active investors in high growth companies typically less than 10 years old, and can invest from £1 million to £6 million in a single transaction.
Looking to buy the business you run, sell part of your business, or pursue a buy and build strategy? Private Equity can be used to finance a wide range of transaction types and help an incumbent management team to acquire a stake in the business they manage.
Our Regional Funds
We manage a range of specialist funds that provide flexible debt or equity finance solutions for dynamic and growth focused small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) across the UK.
How we support your growth
We back people, not just businesses, adding value but not interfering in day-to-day operations. After all, no one knows your organisation better than you. We encourage you to continue growing your business in tandem with our help, support and strategic input.
Committed for the long term
We offer businesses a strong platform for growth by providing flexible and tailored funding solutions which suit your business now and in the future. We have the capacity to provide follow-on funding if required to support acquisitions or strategic growth initiatives, offering speed and certainty of delivery.
We equip our investee companies for success. Our highly experienced investment and portfolio executives can help each management team to continue to further develop their business and provide direct input and guidance on strategic initiatives such as international expansion, bolt-on acquisitions, talent recruitment, and driving operational efficiencies.
National office network
We take a different approach to the London centric model of many other investment firms, by focusing heavily on the major UK economic regions. Our executives are based throughout our nationwide office network meaning that we have local people on the ground who are well connected and understand the nuances of the market in which you operate.
