BGF is driven by the hard work and commitment of all its people. We like to think ourselves every bit as passionate and entrepreneurial as the businesses we back.”
Business Growth Fund was set up in 2011 to offer growing companies and ambitious entrepreneurs patient capital and strategic support. Today, we are the UK and Ireland’s most active investor in small and medium-sized companies. An established and independent company, we have £2.5bn to support a range of growing companies – early stage, growth stage and quoted – across every region and sector of the economy. Hundreds of companies are using our equity capital investments to accelerate growth.
With 14 offices, we are close and relevant to the businesses we invest in. We have grown to a team of 150+ and a network that’s made up of one of the largest pools of board-level executives. Collectively, the companies in our portfolio employ close to 50,000 people. We want to see more entrepreneurs using our capital not only to scale-up their own business but also, collectively, to drive economic activity and with it increase employment, exports and growth.
