BGF is the UK’s and Ireland’s most active and dynamic investor of equity capital in growing companies, backing entrepreneurs and innovators. With 16 offices in the UK and Ireland, we invest across all regions and industry sectors, backing founders and management teams who are powering the future of the economy. Our model is underpinned by a unique combination of long-term capital, minority investments, breadth of coverage and a streamlined investment process to create a real impact.
BGF was set up in 2011 to address the chronic and longstanding shortage of funding available to Britain and Ireland’s small and mid-sized firms, and to inspire a generation of entrepreneurs largely overlooked or insufficiently supported by the investment community. The aim was to create a large and broadly-based equity investment firm that could support these companies on a local basis as a minority and long-term partner, helping to drive growth and returns, building scale in a sustainable way.
BGF is a minority Investor, supporting growth in small to medium sized businesses. BGF has already invested >£3bn in >500 companies and delivered >160 exits – all minority and non-controlling. We provide funding to support a variety of strategic and business plans. We are sector agnostic.
BGF is a different kind of investor. We are looking for entrepreneurial and driven management teams who are looking to materialise their growth plans and / or de-risk their positions. Our approach is to support the businesses throughout the journey and become your long-term partner.
