Proof-of-Concept

Early stage equity finance up to £750,000

If you’re looking for finance to get your product or company started, it’s more likely you will require equity-based funding.

Historically equity markets in the Midlands have invested in later stage businesses with the area receiving less early stage funding than the UK average.

Our Proof-of-Concept equity funding can help you get your idea off the ground and realise your business dream.
