Business Growth Fund

The Business Growth Fund has been established to help Britain’s fast growing smaller and medium sized businesses. Growth potential is the key criteria. BGF will invest between £2m and £10m per business in return for a minimum 10 per cent equity stake and a seat on the board for a BGF director. The Fund will provide long-term equity investment for those growing companies that today do not have access to this source of capital. As such the BGF hopes to be a catalyst for growth among smaller UK companies.
