Capitalex's investment partners have fantastic in-depth knowledge of fundraising for early stage businesses in the UK.

Capitalex was an integral part of the Apex fundraise, supporting the senior management team develop their business plan and ensuring the necessary information was made available for BGF’s investment process. Their investor experience was called upon on numerous occasions to guide management through the process and ensure Apex secured the funds within a tight timeframe."
I have found Capitalex both unique and very helpful for us when seeking new investments. It not only acts as a "one stop shop" when seeking possible investors but also offers a wide range of information about investments. This is invaluable for small companies who do not have the time to waste seeking this type of information when they are so busy operating and growing their own companies. A really superb site."

The platform also provides straightforward explanations of the types of funding available, a searchable database of investors and helpful guidelines for starting fundraising and getting noticed."
