My mindset was historically to not go down the private equity route, but BGF is not really like a typical private equity firm. It has a more ‘patient equity’ approach. I liked that. From the moment I started talking with BGF, I quickly began to realise that BGF’s approach was different – it would very much be an additional layer of support rather than any loss of control.
