Private Growth Capital

The finnCap Group Private Growth Capital team provides private growth capital for fundraisings of £1m - £50m+ for ambitious businesses that have growth potential across all our core sectors, working closely with sector specialist bankers and investor coverage groups to plan the right growth & fundraising strategy.

The team also builds upon the years of specialist mid-market sell-side advice its sector M&A banking team has provided to entrepreneurs, with the sole purpose of helping their companies scale operations to either dominate locally, or further into international markets.

The Private Growth Capital team advises companies that have witnessed the first stages of commercial traction after being venture backed and position them for rapid expansion through a mixture of advisory support and ultimately, access to a deep funding base of private growth investors. Similarly we will work with entrepreneurs that have grown impressively without any outside capital and are looking for a first institutional partner to help drive the business to the next level of growth.

Services

The growth capital team works closely with sector specialist bankers and investor coverage groups to plan the right growth & fundraising strategy, mainly focused on raising primary growth capital to organically build revenues/profits, but can also include capital to fund acquisitive growth and/or provide liquidity to existing shareholders or early backers. We have built strong relationships with a range of funding groups that can provide the flexibility of capital to achieve various strategic outcomes:

  • Late-Stage Venture Capital
  • Growth & Private Equity
  • Family Offices
  • Strategic Investors & Corporate VCs
  • Credit Funds

We understand that the UK and Europe is in a golden-age of innovation, seeing it first hand through our conversations with the entrepreneurs we advise across a number of sectors. With the private capital now available and focused on Europe, we look to work with impressive entrepreneurs that want to make big differences in large markets and find the right investment partners who share that vision.

Why choose us?

  • Friendly, approachable team
  • Intimate knowledge and comprehensive access to our network of investors
  • Experience in scaling up businesses with clear commercial traction

The private growth market continues to boom. We provide a range of services and expertise in raising growth capital and M&A advice for private companies.
