OUR SPONSORS

BRITISH BUSINESS BANK

The British Business Bank is the largest domestic backer of Venture Capital funds in the UK. Established in 2006, the Enterprise Capital Funds programme helps those looking to operate in the UK market to raise venture capital funds specifically targeting early-stage small businesses believed to have long-term growth potential.

The Enterprise Capital Funds (ECF) programme combines private and public money to make equity investments into high growth businesses.

We look to increase the supply of equity to UK growth companies and to lower the barriers to entry for fund managers looking to operate in the VC market. We do this to encourage venture capital funds to operate in a part of the market where smaller businesses are not able to access the growth capital they need.
