Growth capital is a type of funding provided to companies to help deliver their strategic growth plans. These growth plans could include, for example, a site roll-out, purchase of larger premises, acquisition of a competitor or entry into new markets i.e. an international expansion.
Growth capital, also known as development capital, is typically provided by private equity companies often in exchange for an equity share in the business.
At Connection Capital we provide private equity growth capital to established, profitable UK SMEs which are looking to expand. We also provide funding to support management buyouts and where owners are looking to release equity from their holding in a business. In all cases we are able to provide between £3m-£10m of funding.
We specialise in UK businesses in the lower-mid market. This covers UK companies with revenues roughly between £5-£50m.
