When it came to the BGF investment, of course the extra cash has helped us grow as a business. But for us, it was much more about having the backing of a big, very well trusted investor. There was a time when, as a young company, people’s first question would always be, ‘Who is backing you?’​. As soon as BGF were on board, all of that nervousness disappeared.
