Equity Finance

Later stage equity funding up to £2 million

equity finance

Equity finance is widely accepted as an important ingredient for businesses with potential for high growth.

But while the number and value of equity deals have grown sharply in London and the South East over recent years, growth in equity deals in the Midlands has been considerably lower.

MEIF, supported by ERDF, has particular interest in supporting equity investments, helping the Midlands to become a vibrant and sustainable venture capital market.

An equity-based investment could be right if you run an established business with ambitious plans, or a large start up with high growth potential.
