Finance and Accountancy Briefing
Enterprise - For entrepreneurs, growth businesses and their advisers
A hot topic at Entrepreneur Britain was the confusion for many entrepreneurs about where to go for funding. This edition of Enterprise provides a guided tour of the types of finance available from business angels and investor clubs, to venture capital and private equity. Our contributors from each of these areas explain the types of businesses they invest in, how much they invest, the criteria they use to select investments, as well as offering advice to potential investees. To hear about the process from the other side, we spoke to 10CMS, a software business that has recently completed £2.1m funding from a venture capitalist. And we run through the rules for raising equity through venture capital trusts and under the enterprise investment scheme.
