One-to-one support from our Investment Partners who have first-hand experience of investing in SMEs and working closely with CEOs

Capitalex were instrumental in helping us to secure investment of £6.3m from BGF, supporting us from our early conversations with investors through to completion and beyond. They helped us to refine our pitch, prepare for due diligence and understand each stage of the process. With deep experience as investors themselves, they understood how to communicate with our investors and maintain momentum through the process. We would highly recommend them to anyone considering raising capital, they are truly best in class."
