High growth entrepreneurial and medium sized companies often reach a point whereby they can no longer rely on their initial start-up capital and bank facilities. In order to take their business to the next level they require an equity partner.
This injection of equity capital can help entrepreneurs unlock the inherent value of their companies, and gain access to some of the wealth they have created.
