Small businesses power the UK economy through innovation and growth. We have a long track record of backing management teams to deliver on their ambition and create lasting value.
The Entrepreneur Economy is a key driver of growth in the UK, and a major contributor to GDP. For too long, this vital cohort of UK businesses has been overlooked, inaccurately measured or lumped in with the catch-all term “SMEs”, which fails to distinguish between ‘one-person bands’ and companies with genuine growth prospects.
