WEBINAR: How to Win Regional Investment

Author: MPA Group
Published On: 10 July 2024

Are you an entrepreneur seeking investment to take your business to the next level?

Whether you’re a start-up needing a loan to accelerate initial growth, or a scale-up needing a larger investment to hire a new team, launch a new product or service or purchase new machinery, regional funding is worth exploring.

One great example of this is the Midlands Engine Investment Fund, which launched in 2017 and supported 739 businesses with £300 million in funding. On the back of this success, the second fund is now open for applications, offering £400 million of funds, deployable as loans worth £25,000 up to £2 million into regional businesses.

Funds like these offer business owners who may not be investable for traditional lenders (due to size, revenue or activity) access to growth funding. Though, as with any form of investment, a compelling case must be made to persuade fund manager to invest.

This is why MPA Group is teaming up with Lewis Stringer, Senior Manager, East & South-East Midlands at British Business Bank, and Daniel Carrico, Executive Director at First Enterprise, who will share insight on how to prepare a business for funding, what fund managers are looking for, and when to start the process – as well as insight into how they’ve seen the market change in the last 24 months.

This event on 25th July is for any UK SME looking for growth funding, particularly those who may not qualify for other finance options due to size, or activity.
