A message on Covid-19

We are very aware of the challenges facing UK SMEs at this time. In response, we have created a coronavirus and business continuity package that is available, free of charge, to all of our members. This package is designed to help SMEs navigate and survive the current market conditions by guiding them through the necessary steps to forecast and assess cash flow, manage and optimise costs, and access capital, including the Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme (CBILS). We are keeping this information up to date with the latest announcements and intelligence gained from our network.

Our team of Investment Partners are also on hand to help. All of our partners are current or former venture capital and private equity investors who have sat on the boards of multiple SMEs, guiding them through good times and bad. We have specialist expertise in managing cash, raising debt finance and maintaining compliance with directors' responsibilities.

The expertise of investors.

Our resources and support are delivered by experienced current and former private equity and venture capital investors.

Our team has collectively invested hundreds of millions into UK based SMEs and worked closely with businesses of all sizes and sectors. We provide honest, constructive feedback and support on fundraising and strategic initiatives.

Capitalex were instrumental in helping us to secure investment of £9.3m 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.
