The British Business Bank equity programmes offer Enterprise Capital Funds. These commercially-focused funds that bring together private and public money to make equity investments in high-growth businesses. The investment encourages venture capital funds to operate in a part of the market where smaller businesses are not able to access the growth capital they need.
The Venture Capital Catalyst Fund invests in commercially viable venture capital funds that might otherwise fail to reach a satisfactory ‘first close’.
The UK Innovation Investment Fund (UKIIF) supports the creation of viable investment funds targeting UK high-growth technology-based businesses.
The British Business Bank is also investing alongside business angels via the Business Angel Co-Investment Fund (Angel CoFund), which supports businesses with strong growth potential.
Further information on these and other British Business Bank solutions can be found on their website.
